Advances in Heart diseases

Major approaches in coronary revascularization have been the development of beating heart bypass surgery .The recent inventions in minimally invasive surgery include robotic surgery and enabling technologies those aimed at lessening aortic manipulation and technologies such as the anastomotic devices. These procedures and innovative devices for treating and diagnosing heart conditions are on the horizon.

  • New drugs cut cholesterol levels by half (PCSK9 inhibitors)
  • Replacing aortic valves without surgery (Trans catheter aortic valve replacement)
  • Renal denervation loses luster
  • Wireless sensors for severe heart failure ( CardioMEMS HF System)
  • Google Glass
  • Bioresorbable stents
  • Leadless pacemaker
  • Valve-in-valve procedure
  • Protein patch for heart muscle growth
