I was a reasonably fit 67 year old with stable angina. an angiogram indicated the need for a triple coronary bypass. i was aware that open heart surgery was highly traumatic and the use of heart lung machines could temporarily impair my mental functions. i consulted mr birdi with a raft of relevant questions related to potential treatment options. he answered all my queries and warned that he might only be able to replace 2 of the arteries with minimal invasion and in the worst case may need to perform the traditional method of surgery. in conjunction with anaesthetist mr george and a team mr birdi replaced 3 coronary arteries using minimally invasive techniques with my heart beating, using durable arteries for grafts. after a few hours sedation i awoke fully lucid, if frail. after 2 days in icu and 4 days total i walked out of the hospital, albeit carefully. i walked a few hundred metres after 1 week and approached fully functional after 4. by 6 weeks all incisions had healed and was performing arduous physical activity. i have nothing but praise for the opportunity to benefit from this latest surgical technique. the rapid recovery has enabled me to carry on with my personal plans with little interruption.
