They have a suction device that grabs on to the top of the heart and allows them to do the bypass surgery without stopping the beating. Apparently the external blood oxygenators that were required for previous open heart surgery almost always caused blood clots and ministrokes that affected people's brains. The talk was mainly about tools they were developing to do some types of heart surgery through a small incision without having to crack open the sternum. <obligatory political message> Of course, if the socialized medicine advocates succeed, we will be able to stop this kind of research because it generates obscene profits for the private companies. </obligatory political message>And if we don't socialize it, only a handful of people wil be able to afford any of these expensive new procedures. What's the difference to the average person?intercst
