What are the Most Commonly Performed Surgeries?

Whether you are trying to learn more about a surgery you are planning to have or find out what the most common procedures are, this list is here for you.

  1. Appendectomy

An appendectomy is a surgical procedure that is used to treat appendicitis, a condition that causes an acute inflammation of the appendix. It is believed that about 1 in 20 people will get appendicitis at some point in their lives, although about 40% of people will not suffer painful symptoms. If symptoms are too painful, you will have an appendectomy to remove your appendix.

  1. Breast Biopsy

This is a diagnostic test that involves removing breast tissue or cells with the use of a microscope. The purpose of this test is both for examination and treatment of a lump in the breast tissue.

  1. Carotid Endarterectomy

This surgery is used to remove blockages that occur in arteries located in the neck. These arteries are responsible for supplying the blood to the brain. If this surgery is not performed, then a patient runs the risk of suffering a stroke.

  1. Cataract Surgery

Every year about three million people undergo cataract surgery in the United States alone. This surgery is used to remove a cataract in the eye that causes obscured, blurred or clouded vision. Expert cataract surgeons will then replace the natural lens with a prosthetic replacement.

  1. Caesarean Section

More commonly known as a C-Section, these are planned or unplanned surgeries that are used to ensure the safety of a mother and baby during childbirth. It is believed that c-sections make up just over 30% of all births.

  1. Joint Replacement

More than one million Americans have joint replacement surgery each year. The most common type of joint replacement surgery is knee replacements, followed by hip replacements. Doctors will also perform these surgeries on other joints like the shoulder or ankle.

  1. Broken Bone Related Surgeries

Depending on the type of break, location, and severity, a patient might need to undergo surgery to recover from a broken bone. During the surgery a doctor might implant metal plates, screws, and rods to help keep a bone in place as it heals.

  1. Gallbladder Removal

The gallbladder is a small organ located just under the liver; it stores the fluid known as bile used in digestion. Gallbladder removal is usually a result of the development of gallstones. Gallstones are hardened deposits of digestive fluid that can block the flow of liquid out of the gallbladder to other organs.

  1. Heart Bypass Surgery

The most commonly performed type of heart bypass surgery is a coronary artery bypass graft. This surgery is used to treat the build-up of plaque that reduces blood flow to the heart muscles in patients that have coronary artery disease. When this surgery has not been performed, the build-up of plaque can cause a heart attack. This operation involves a doctor connecting a healthy artery to the blocked artery, allowing for fluid flow.

Dr. Michael Newman, Indaptus’ Founder, Chief Scientific Officer, and lead author, commented, “The new data are consistent with our preclinical animal tumor model studies and provide evidence for our hypothesis that patented Decoy bacteria can activate a wide range of innate and adaptive human immune cells involved in fighting tumors.  This aligns with what we’ve observed in our ongoing Phase 1 clinical trial of Decoy20 – broad immune activation, as evidenced by transiently increased levels of many key cytokines and chemokines following single dose administration. These findings bolster our confidence in Decoy20's potential as a multifaceted immunotherapy.”

“We are excited to present the first look at the safety and clinical activity of ELVN-001, which we believe supports the potential for ELVN-001 to address the limitations of the available active-site TKIs,” said Helen Collins, M.D., Chief Medical Officer of Enliven. “Across a wide dose range, ELVN-001 demonstrated activity in a heavily pre-treated patient population that includes post-asciminib patients, with a preliminary safety profile consistent with its highly selective design. Not only did all evaluable patients have improved or stable BCR::ABL1 transcript levels, but, importantly, 89% of all patients enrolled remain on study. We believe the initial data demonstrate the potential clinical utility of ELVN-001 for all types of patients, including those that are earlier in the treatment paradigm.”
