Coronary artery bypass grafting represents one of the most commonly performed cardiac surgeries worldwide. Recently, interest has increased in providing patients with a less invasive approach to cardiac surgery, such as thoracotomy and endoscopic techniques using robotic technology as an alternative to traditional sternotomy. As the population gets older, the need for additional methods to provide care for sick patients will continue to expand. These advancements will further allow physicians to provide cardiac surgical procedures with less pain and faster recovery for patients.
