Ahmedabad: A new surgery procedure called Minimum Invasive Cardiac Surgery (MICS) that reduces the incision size by more than half will be showcased at the three-day international conference on cardiology beginning here Friday.

The conference, 'CIMS-3C-CON 2011', is being organized in collaboration with the 4th World Congress International Academy of Cardiovascular Sciences. It is being held at the Care Institute of Medical Sciences (CIMS) here.

The CIMS-3C-CON will bring to Ahmedabad the largest ever international faculty in the history of Indian cardiac conferences, Milan Chag, managing director, CIMS & Chair, Scientific Committee told mediapersons here Thursday.

He said the aim of the conference, being attended by experts from more than a 100 nationally and internationally acclaimed faculties and over 1,600 delegates, is to bridge the gap between basic sciences and clinical practice.

"Also, this year we align with the International Academy of Cardiovascular Sciences and enlarge our canvass of curriculum to include basic research sciences," he added.

Chag said that at the conference, Dr Dhiren Shah will showcase Minimum Invasive Cardiac Surgery (MICS), which medical science hs described as the precursor of the future Robotic Surgery.

"This novel surgery procedure called Minimum Invasive Cardiac Surgery (MICS) is an answer to all the problems related to big incisions (cuts) on body like wound infection, keloid scars, pain, delayed recovery and cosmetic problem in young patients.

"This surgery reduces the incision size to 3 to 4 inches instead of 8 to 12 inches in traditional surgery. Also the recovery time is reduced from three months to just one month."
