Cardiothoracic Surgery at the Hospital da Luz Lisboa includes coronary revascularization with and without extracorporeal circulation, valve surgery, thoracic aortic surgery, atrial fibrillation surgery, among others.
Cardiothoracic surgery is now one of three pillars in the treatment of cardiovascular disease, along with medical therapy and interventional cardiology.
Interventions are provided for both adult and pediatric patients.
Cardiothoracic Surgery has an integral connection to the Departments of Cardiology and Pneumology as well as the Intensive Care Unit.
This multidisciplinary integration supports the realization of excellent surgical results, as well as the success of the Cardiovascular Center as a whole.
