Cardiothoracic surgery is a surgical specialty that specializes in surgery on heart surgery and large cardiac blood vessels.
For operations on the heart or on large vessels close to the heart, a distinction is made between two forms of intervention:
Closed heart surgery: intervention outside the heart or a digitally or instrumentally performed intracardiac procedure.
Open heart surgery: usually more complicated operation on the opened, bloodless heart. The heart is brought to a standstill with a potassium-rich, cardioplegic solution (cardioplegia) and cooled (hypothermia). A heart-lung machine is used to bridge cardiac arrest.
Heart transplantation: In severe cases and uncorrectable malformations, a complete replacement of the heart by a graft can be done in certain cases.
Every year, around 96,000 surgeries are performed in Germany using a heart-lung machine (HLM).
