Heart Surgery

Cardiac surgery is performed to correct heart defects. Coronary artery bypass grafting (CABG) is the most common form of heart surgery on adults. During CABG, a healthy body artery or vein is attached to a blocked coronary (heart) artery, or is grafted. The blocked part of the coronary artery is bypassed by the grafted artery or vein (that is, it goes about). This opens a new path to the heart muscle for oxygen-rich blood to flow to. CABG can alleviate chest pain and decrease the risk of experiencing a heart attack. Cardiac surgery can minimize complications, improve quality of life and increase survival chances.
