Bypass surgery for Coronary Artery Disease in the elderly patients

Date: 08 Jan 2019

For decades, Apollo Hospitals has stood as a pillar of distinction in healthcare services. Apollo Hospitals' services have benefitted all sections of society from the young to the elderly. While surgeries in the elderly are considered complicated, entailing higher risks, Apollo Hospitals has successfully delivered on its promise of excellence in healthcare by providing successful bypass treatment to even people in their 80s.

An 85-year-old woman from Churu, Rajasthan, Rukmani Devi was admitted to Indraprastha Apollo Hospitals on 24 November 2017. Under the care of Dr B N Das, Rukmani underwent bypass surgery for CAD (Coronary Artery Disease) along with triple vessel disease. Within 10 days, on 01 December, she was discharged from the Hospital. Today, hale and hearty Rukmani is enjoying a disease-free life.

Similarly, Mathura Meena, 80-year-old from Bhopal received successful treatment for CAD at Indraprastha Apollo Hospitals, with a beneficial outcome. The thriving health of these elderly patients - even after delicate surgeries - is a testament to the proven capabilities of healthcare providers at Indraprastha Apollo Hospitals, who always consider the wellbeing of patients as their highest priority.
