As per available reports about 2 relevant Journals, 26 Conferences, 18 National symposiums are presently dedicated exclusively to cardiothoracic surgery and about 10 articles are being published on cardiothoracic surgery.
Cardiothoracic surgery is the field of medicine involved in surgical treatment of diseases affecting organs inside the thorax (the chest)—generally treatment of conditions of the heart (heart disease) and lungs (lung disease). A thoracic surgeon is a medical doctor who performs operations on the heart, lungs, esophagus, and other organs in the chest. This also includes surgeons who can be called cardiothoracic surgeons, cardiovascular surgeons, general thoracic surgeons, and congenital heart surgeons.

Scope and importance:
Advances in Science and Technology, in association with better living conditions has apparently increased the average life span of humankind. However, incidence pattern of heart diseases has also shown a considerable increase. Various factors have contributed to this; life style changes, food habits, occupational conditions and priority alterations play a role. A recent estimate declares that by the year 2020, about 100 million of Indian population would have suffered or be suffering from one or other heart ailment. The field had its meteoric rise and now is on the rapid descent. Adult cardiac surgery is being taken over by Cardiology, adult thoracic surgeryis really not a sustaining specialty unto itself, and congenital heart surgery should only be centralized in a few small centers. Like many rumors there may be some half-truths in those assertions but in the current reality of modern medicine it is highly unlikely that cardiothoracic surgery will flounder for long or fade away completely. Surgery in great vessels, became common after the turn of the century and falls in the domain of cardiac surgery, but technically cannot be considered heart surgery. One of the more commonly known cardiac surgery procedures is the coronary artery bypass graft (CABG), also known as "bypass surgery." In this procedure, vessels from elsewhere in the patient's body are most commonly harvested using a procedure known as EVH, and grafted to the coronary arteries to bypass blockages and improve the blood supply to the heart muscle. This new technology occurred at a time when first, compliance issues and human research oversight was minimal compared to current standards, and secondly, a huge untapped population of patients with atherosclerotic coronary artery disease was discovered. Coronary bypass surgery evolved and fostered an explosive growth and also allowed us to attract the best and brightest of young surgical residents.
Children aren’t simply miniature people who suffer the same diseases adults do, but on a smaller scale. Rather, they have their own specific afflictions and abnormalities and require surgical approaches specifically tailored to their size, developmental vulnerability and their rapid rate of growth. Just as newborns quickly outgrow their clothes, their heart and vessels may outgrow the patches surgeons use to repair them. As a mirror to our clinical practice, our basic research programs seek to resolve the unmet needs of children growing up with heart disease, and improve surgical approaches specific to pediatric cardiac surgery.
Much modern cardiothoracic surgery is performed with the help of highly advanced machines that are operated externally by a surgeon. The main advantage to these machines is that they can operate through very small incisions, and this dramatically shortens the recovery time of a patient. The most advanced machines are even able to react intelligently to changes in the patient’s body. For instance, some machines can adapt to the beating of a heart , moving their arms in synch with it, so that to the surgeon operating the machine it appears as if the heart is stationary. These surgeons offer virtually every type of cardiac surgery including elective or emergency surgery for heart valve disease, aortic aneurysm, coronary artery disease, arrhythmias, heart failure, Marfan syndrome and other less common conditions.
The global market for cardiovascular surgical devices used in the operating room is worth an estimated $31 billion in 2015. By 2015, this market will be valued at nearly $48 billion, a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 8.7%. This sector is worth an estimated $7 billion in 2015 and is expected to increase at a 10.9% compound annual growth rate (CAGR) to reach $12 billion in 2018. The second fastest area of growth is in cardiac rhythm management devices, particularly for the treatment of atrial fibrillation (AF). This sector is valued at $11 billion in 2020 and is expected to be worth $18 billion in 2018, a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 10.2%.
