Lobectomy (general)

Lobectomy (general)

 

 

Open-heart surgery refers to operations performed on the heart that require a patient being placed on the heart-lung bypass machine. The heart-lung bypass machine takes over the function of the heart and lungs to provide oxygenated blood to the body. The heart can be stopped with a solution called "cardioplegia." Cardioplegia is a cold, high-potassium solution. It also protects the heart muscle while it is stopped.
