Mr. Spyri was referred to our center following a positive exercise test and a coronary angiography that confirmed the diagnosis of a 3-vessel coronary artery disease. Coronary artery disease (CAD) is a medical condition characterized by stenosis of the coronary arteries, which are responsible for the delivery of oxygen and nutrients to the myocardium.
The indicated treatment for Mr. Spyri was a coronary artery bypass grafting (CABG) procedure to restore the blood supply to the heart muscle. The CABG procedure is a surgical intervention that creates an alternative route for blood circulation to bypass a narrowed or blocked coronary artery in the heart. The procedure entails taking a viable blood vessel from the thoracic or lower extremity region and anatomically connecting it below to the occluded coronary artery.
Mr. Spyri showed remarkable recovery, starting mobilization and physiotherapy on the first postoperative day. He demonstrated progressive improvement on a daily basis and he was ready for discharge after only seven days in the hospital.
We were pleased to catch up with Mr. Spyri during his one-month postoperative examination and we had the privilege of listening to him perform a few songs for us.
Best wishes to you, Mr. Spyri, from the entire team. Take extra good care of yourself and keep up the positive thoughts.
