What is it? CABG surgery consists of using another artery or vein to redirect blood around an obstruction of the arteries (coronary arteries) that supply blood and oxygen to the heart. Benefits of the procedure
- It allows treatment of severe, multivessel coronary disease.
- This procedure is indicated when other cardiovascular disease treatment such as aortic valve replacement or ascending aorta surgery is going to be done.
- Aortocoronary bypass permits the patient substantial time without restenosis (narrowing of the artery after the procedure).
