Kalyan: Successful Open-Heart Surgery Performed On Farmer


Doctors at a hospital in Kalyan successfully performed open-heart surgery on Dinkar Patil (56) with a heart attack due to Triple Vessel Disease(TVD) that led to blockage of blood vessels.

The patient was brought to the hospital in an emergency with complaints like chest pain, palpitation, and chest heaviness. After surgery, the patient has been discharged and united with the family. 

Patil, a farmer based in Kalyan was suddenly jolted out of his normal routine due to uneasiness and tried some home remedies to get that much-needed relief. To his dismay, he experienced worrisome signs like chest pain, palpitation, and chest heaviness. His family was alarmed, recognized the red flags, and brought him to Siddhivinayak Multispeciality Hospital & Cardiac Care Center.

Dr. Abhay Jain, Cardiac surgeon, Siddhivinayak Multispeciality Hospital & Cardiac Care Center said, “The patient came into Emergency Room (ER) on January 20 and an electrocardiogram (ECG) was done that indicated myocardial infarction. He was immediately taken to the cath lab where an angiography was done. It was revealed that the patient suffered Triple Vessel Disease (TVD) an extreme form of coronary artery disease (CAD) that causes morbidity and mortality in patients with diabetes mellitus. The patient and his family members were counselled and he was scheduled to undergo a coronary artery bypass graft (CABG) on January 23.”

 Dr Jain added, “Three major vessels which supply blood to heart were blocked. An incision is made down the centre of the chest, through the sternum (breast bone), so that the heart and coronary arteries can be seen. A healthy blood vessel is taken from the patient’s leg, arm, chest, or abdomen and connected to the other arteries in the heart so that blood is bypassed around the diseased or blocked area. The new vessel is known as graft. Sing graft taken from left leg was used in his case.”

This procedure improves blood flow and oxygen supply to the heart and manages symptoms like chest pain and shortness of breath. “The chest incision was closed, and a chest tube was used to drain the fluid. The surgery lasted for 3.5 hours and the patient was kept in the ICU for two days and later shifted to the general ward. He was discharged on January 28. He will be able to resume his daily routine after a month,” said Dr Abhay Gaikwad, Director of Siddhivinayak Multispeciality Hospital.

“I was unable to concentrate on my daily activities due to chest pain and palpitation. I was petrified before undergoing the surgery, but the doctors comforted me and gave me hope that I can bounce back. The doctors well-informed us about the procedure and my family members were also assured that I will be fine,” concluded the patient.
