In brief: Not sure

Well I am trying to answer questions that no one has answered.
, your question is difficult because i don't know what you mean by materials. The surgeon would use scalpels, suture material to sew up the wounds, and various other surgical instruments depending on the exact type of open heart surgery. Is that what you mean?
