Coronary artery bypass grafting
Coronary artery bypass grafting (CABG) also known as Coronary artery bypass surgery, is a type of surgery that improves blood flow to the heart. Surgeons use CABG to treat people who have severe coronary heart disease (CHD). Coronary bypass surgery redirects blood around a section of a blocked or partially blocked artery in heart to improve blood flow to heart muscle. The procedure involves taking a healthy blood vessel from leg, arm or chest and connecting it beyond the blocked arteries in your heart. Although coronary bypass surgery does not cure the heart disease that caused the blockages (atherosclerosis or coronary artery disease), it can ease symptoms, such as chest pain and shortness of breath.
