Cardiac surgery experts often have experience treating aortic aneurysms, congenital disorders, connective tissue disease, coronary artery disease, aortic arch and root, ascending and descending aorta, and other such ailments. It is very important that a proper medical records review be conducted for each patient before undergoing surgery, as failing to do so may cause various complications. Many cardiac surgery experts have also worked with pacemakers and other types of medical devices.
