With the advent of minimally-invasive robotic surgery, a new approach to coronary bypass and MIDCAB became available to patients who needed only one vein graph. Robotic surgeons can now accomplish a single graph of the left internal mammory artery to left anterior descending artery using the da Vinci® Surgical System. The superior viewing system and wristed instruments of da Vinci® allow the surgeon to operate with greater precision resulting in less complication and potentially better outcomes than conventional MIDCAB.
For the clinically appropriate patient, the da Vinci® procedure offers a number of potential benefits over traditional surgery, including:
- Less post-operative pain
- Less risk of infection
- Less anesthesia
- Less blood loss
- Shorter hospital stay
- Faster and more complete recovery
- Quicker return to normal daily activities
