There are many types of heart surgeries. These surgeries may be performed for:

• Repair and replace the valves that control the flow of blood through the cavities of the heart

• Bypassing or widening the blocked coronary arteries that lead blood to the heart

• Repair “aneurysm”, And that is in the aorta, whose explosion leads to death

Implantation of pacemakers

• Destruction of small pieces of tissue that block electrical flow through the heart

Opening channels within the heart muscle to allow blood to flow from the heart chambers directly into the myocardium

• Strengthening the pumping capacity of the heart by using muscles taken from the back or abdomen

• Replacing the diseased heart by transplanting another heart from a donor’s body
