Surgical program gives patients with the advantage of an on-site multidisciplinary group of cardiologists, electro physiologists, interventional radiologists, vascular specialists, medical attendants, nurture specialists and doctor colleagues, dietitians, physical advisors and social labourers. This group regularly grows to include quick care from on-site doctors from each restorative claim to fame required.


Cardiologists, Physical Advisors, Radiologists, Dietitians, Heart-Lung Machine.

By performing the capacities of the heart and lungs, this machine allows the specialist to function straightforwardly on the heart.

It is known that cardiac surgery is performed with higher mortality and horribleness rates in elderly patients compared to younger patients. Presently, when fitting choices are made in patient determination and surgical methods, surgeries of patients over 80 a long time ancient can moreover be performed with moo mortality and morbidity rates [5]. In our ponder, no relationship was found between age and mortality, and no early mortality was found in patients over 80 a long time of age.
