Procedure, Preparation and Recovery
Also known as Coronary Artery Bypass Graft (CABG), a heart bypass surgery is a medical procedure that involves treating blocked or narrowed arteries (coronary artery disease or CAD).
Coronary arteries supply oxygen-rich blood and nutrients to the heart muscles. CAD occurs when there is formation of plaque or fatty material within the walls of the arteries. This causes the arteries to shrink or become narrow and leads to hindrance in blood supply going to the heart muscles.
During the CABG procedure, healthy blood vessels are taken from other parts of the body and used to bypass the blocked artery. The grafts or blood vessels can be taken from veins in legs or arteries in the chest and wrist.
A bypass surgery is recommended by the cardiac specialist depending on the number of arteries blocked.
