VATS Pericardial Window Surgical Procedure at DRHC

A VATS (Video-Assisted Thoracic Surgery) pericardial window is a minimally invasive surgical procedure used to create a small opening in the pericardium, the thin sac that surrounds the heart. This procedure is typically performed to drain fluid that has accumulated around the heart, a condition known as pericardial effusion.

During a VATS pericardial window, the surgeon makes several small incisions in the chest and inserts a small camera and specialized instruments through the incisions. The camera allows the surgeon to visualize the pericardium and surrounding structures on a monitor, while the instruments are used to create a small opening in the pericardium to drain the fluid.

The VATS pericardial window is associated with less pain, shorter hospital stays, and faster recovery times compared to traditional open surgery. It is usually performed under general anesthesia and may require a hospital stay of several days to several weeks, depending on the extent of the surgery and the patient's condition.

In Dubai, VATS pericardial window is typically performed by highly skilled and experienced thoracic surgeons who specialize in the treatment of pericardial effusion. The surgeons at the Dubai Thoracic Surgery Clinic, located at the Dr. Rami Hamed Center, have extensive experience in performing VATS pericardial windows and work closely with a multidisciplinary team of healthcare professionals to provide comprehensive care for patients undergoing this procedure.
