Department of Cardiovascular Surgery
Department of Cardiovascular Surgery was founded by the famous cardiothoracic surgeon, Professor Fan Shi-Zhi, in 1990¨s. With nearly two decades development it has been a famous cardiovascular center, combining research, education and clinical practice, which can provide innovative and scientific treatments for heart diseases.
As one of most experienced cardiac surgery groups, our department cares for patients from all over China. We offer many types of cardiac surgery, including minimally invasive cardiac surgery, congenital heart disease surgical therapy, critical valve disease surgical therapy, great vascular disease surgery, coronary heart disease surgical treatment and local advanced lung cancer and other rare diseases. In minimally invasive cardiac surgery, our group has developed percutaneous interventional treatment of congenital heart diseases, percutaneous transthoracic surgery of congenital heart diseases, video-assisted thoracoscope surgery and mini-invasive surgery. In congenital heart disease surgical therapy, we have successfully deal with double outlet right ventricle (DORV), pulmonary atresia (PA), atrioventricular canal defects (AVSD), Ebstein malformation, single ventricle, persistent truncus arteriosus (PTA), transposition of great arteries (TGA), coarctation of the aorta (CoA), interrupt of the aorta (IAA) and Tetralogy of Fallot (TOF). In valve disease surgical therapy, we also have achieved successful in many severe diseases, such as critical valve diseases, huge heart, multi-valve diseases and et al. In great vascular surgery, we had developed many new operations, such as complex aneurysm correction surgery, endovascular aortic aneurysm surgery by DSA, ＾chimney￣ surgery and ＾one-step￣ hybrid procedure. In coronary heart disease surgical treatment, we begun to develop off-pump coronary artery bypass surgery and surgical treatment of elderly with severe coronary artery disease. Besides, we have the first ＾one-step￣ hybrid operation room in southeastern China. Based on this, we have successfully applied ＾one-step￣ hybrid operation in many heart diseases with the cardiologists, such as coronary heart disease.
It has been demonstrated that the clinical outcomes are satisfactory since we apply the newest and advanced equipments, devices and surgical techniques, including minimally invasive surgery, off-pump bypass, thoracoscope-assisted, percutaneous procedures and hybrid surgery.
