Abstract

Aim: The aim of this study is to evaluate the results of 67 open heart surgeries performed in the first year in a new cardiovascular surgery clinic.

Material and Method: Patients who underwent open heart surgery in our clinic between May 2021 and May 2022 were evaluated retrospectively. The hospitalization time, cross-clamp time, complications and mortality data of the patients were obtained retrospectively from the hospital database. In the analysis of the data, mean values were calculated for continuous variables, while percentage and frequency values were shown for categorical variables.

Results: A total of 67 cases were included in the study. Isolated CABG surgery was performed on 44 patients with cardiopulmonary bypass (CPB). Isolated CABG surgery was performed on 3 patients without CPB (beating heart). CABG and mitral valve replacement (MVR) operations were performed simultaneously in two patients. MVR operation and tricuspid valve annuloplasty operations were performed simultaneously in two patients. MVR surgery was performed in four patients in isolation. Aortic valve replacement (AVR) operation was performed in 6 patients in isolation. Ascending aorta replacement was performed in three patients simultaneously with AVR operation. Bentall surgery was performed in two patients, and intra-cardiac tumor (myxoma) excision surgery was performed in one patient. Bleeding revision surgery was performed in one patient (1.5%) on the same day due to early bleeding and pericardial tamponade. Sternal dehiscence was observed in two patients in the late period (3%). Postoperative mortality was seen in a total of four patients (5.9%).

Conclusion: As a result of our study, we determined that the surgeries performed in
