Overview – Cardiothoracic Surgery

Cardiothoracic surgery is the specialty involved with the treatment of diseases affecting organs within the thorax (the chest), principally the heart, lungs and oesophagus.Procedures are often lengthy and complex, requiring support from advanced forms of technology during surgery and intensive therapy for the patient after surgery.

It was the first specialty to use outcome measures to analyse and improve techniques and procedures, largely due to the fact that cardiac procedures carry a definite risk of death and outcomes can be sorted along binary lines (ie either the patient survived or they did not). The availability of these data allows us to see the great advances that have been made in terms of minimising risk to the patient, with more than 98% of patients now surviving heart bypass operations in India.
