In this video, Dr. OP. Yadava, Chief Executive Officer & Chief Cardiac Surgeon, National Heart Institute, New Delhi, will talk about when to do a non-cardiac surgery after a bypass surgery. If the non-cardiac surgery is of emergent nature, it can be done at any time without any problem. There are no such contraindications for doing non-cardiac surgery immediately after a bypass surgery. Dr. Yadava tells us that the problem arises when the patient has an elective cardiac surgery. In such patients, it is recommended that the patient should recover which is generally 4 – 6 weeks and then the non-cardiac surgery is scheduled. He will also talk about the consequences if we stop the anti-platelets treatment for non-cardiac surgery and what can be done.
