Surgery – Procedures and Techniques

  • Coronary Artery Bypass Grafting (CABG) is used to treat a narrowing of the coronary arteries when the blockages are hard to reach or are too long or hard for angioplasty. A blood vessel, usually taken from the leg or chest, is grafted onto the blocked artery, creating a bypass around the blockage. If more than one artery is blocked, a bypass can be done on each.
    • Standard bypass. Open-heart surgery is required for traditional bypass surgery. The heart is stopped during the operation and its function is taken over by a heart-lung machine.
    • Off-pump coronary artery bypass (OPCAB) is a form of bypass surgery that does not stop the heart or use the heart lung machine. This is a more complicated surgery than
      traditional bypass, but recovery can be faster.
