Hyderabad, 30th August, 2017 City based Cardiac Surgeon Dr. Lokeswara Rao Sajja, Senior Consultant Cardiac Surgeon at Star Hospitals and Chairman, Sajja Heart Foundation, recently attended the International Coronary Congress 2017, held in New York from August 18th to 20th, 2017.
This prestigious Meet was organized by the International Coronary Congress (ICC) which is a multidisciplinary program to examine and promote best practices in Coronary Revascularization. The program featured world class speakers from around the globe, and included the most innovative techniques and technologies related to the surgical care of patients with Coronary Artery Disease, so it was a matter of great prestige that Dr. Sajja was amongst the three speakers from the Cardiac Surgeons Community of India.
The Inaugural International Coronary Congress in New York City was attended by delegates from 41 different countries to hear two and a half days of lectures, seminars, symposia, and hands-on sessions from world leaders in Surgical Coronary Revascularization and Cardiology.
Dr. Sajja presented a paper entitled “Analysis of 30-day outcomes of off and on-pump Coronary Artery Bypass Grafting – a propensity matched study.” The Study involved 11,697 patients, which is 4,433 pairs matched by a propensity score. It was one of the largest propensity matched analyses in the history of Coronary Bypass Surgery in the world, showing excellent 30-day outcomes in patients who underwent either on-pump or off-pump Coronary Artery Bypass Surgery for multi-vessel Coronary Artery Disease, with mortality less than 1% (0.78). Some of the cases included patients with diabetes, left ventricular dysfunction and chronic kidney disease.

Males = 87%
Females = 13%
Males : Females = 6:1
Average Age = 58yrs ( min 28yrs – max 85yrs)
Mortality = 0.7% at par with the best centers in the world
Most of the patients from AP & Telangana
10% of total worlds bypass operations done in India
Dr. Sajja’s Study covered a 20-year period, during which the Star Hospital team, consisting of Dr. Gopichand Mannam and Dr. Lokeshwar Rao Sajja, conducted almost 12,000 CABG procedures on patients from 28 years to 85 years of age, with the lowest mortality rate on par with the best in the world. With this Study, Dr. Sajja proved that Hyderabad is on a level with the best medical centers across the globe, with 10% of the total bypass operations performed in India.
Dr. Sajja is a veteran of over 12,500 cardiac surgeries spanning Coronary Artery Bypass Grafting Surgery, Off-pump CABG and On-pump CABG using multiple arterial grafts (Bilateral internal mammary arteries, radial artery grafts), mitral valve repair for ischemic mitral regurgitation, and redo-CABG operation with a high degree of success of 99.8%. He is particularly passionate about promoting the usage of Bilateral Internal Thoracic Artery for CABG.
Dr. Sajja is the only Coronary Surgeon from India who is an Active Member in the American Association for Thoracic Surgery (AATS), for his proven record of distinction within the International Cardiothoracic Surgical field, and meritorious contributions to the extant knowledge base about cardiothoracic disease and its surgical treatment. He is the fourth Cardiothoracic Surgeon to reach this milestone from India since its inception in the year 1917. He is also the first surgeon from India who has presented a paper at the Annual Meeting of Prestigious AATS.
Dr. Sajja is a keen researcher, and has published more than 50 original articles in peer reviewed international journals. He is a guest reviewer for the Annals of Thoracic Surgery, European Journal of Cardiothoracic Surgery, Asian Cardiovascular and Thoracic Annals, International Journal of Surgery, Cardiology, Indian Heart Journal, IJTCVS, and has reviewed over 250 manuscripts.
The Study that he presented at the International Coronary Congress in New York City, puts the spotlight on the large strides made in medicine and surgery in India, and proves that we have all the expertise in this area right at our doorstep.
