Coronary Artery Bypass Graft (CABG) surgery To treat a blockage or narrowing of one or more of the coronary arteries to restore the blood vessels that supply oxygen and nutrients to the heart muscle.
Unfortunately, you may not have any symptoms in early coronary artery disease, yet the disease will continue to progress until there’s enough artery blockage to cause symptoms and problems. If the blood supply to your heart muscle continues to decrease as a result of increasing blockage of a coronary artery, you may have a heart attack. If the blood flow can’t be restored to the particular area of the heart muscle affected, the tissue dies.
There may be other reasons for your doctor to recommend CABG surgery. In simple language, it is called a “Bypass Surgery” only because, the doctor attaches one end of the graft above the blockage and the other end below the blockage. Blood bypasses the blockage by going through the new graft to reach the heart muscle.
In this surgery of heart, valves could be either repaired or replaced based on its diseased condition’s severity and surgery recommendations.
