    Coronary Artery Bypass Graft

    Treatment description

    What is Coronary Artery Bypass Graft Surgery?

    Coronary Artery Bypass Graft surgery (by-passes, coronary artery bypass grafting, CABG) is performed on patients with coronary artery disease who can not improve the blood supply to the heart muscle by performing coronary angioplasty.

    Angioplasty (PTCA) is the extension of the narrowed coronary artery special balloon that filled the air, causing a dent in plaque in the vessel wall. In patients with coronary heart disease (coronary artery stenoses many) angioplasty can be more risky than surgery coronary artery bypass grafting, or by-pass.

    Bypass surgery involves avoiding obstructions in the coronary arteries and bringing blood through the stenosis to the vessels further by means of artificial connections between the main artery (aorta) and coronary arteries. This solution provides greater blood supply to the heart muscle.

    Vessels used for the by-passes are taken from the leg. Currently, surgery is usually performed with the use of coronary artery implantation in the left anterior coronary artery.

    Preparing for surgery coronary bypass surgery

    Before performing the bypass, the patient must be adequately prepared for the procedure. Your doctor will make sure you have all necessary tests done.

    • clinically proven coronary heart disease

    Contraindication to bypass surgery

    These include:

    • narrowing of the coronary arteries throughout its course (proximal and distal), which prevents implantation of a coronary artery bypass surgery

    • significantly impaired capacity infarction

    Bypass surgery is performed on the basis of earlier cardiac tests, but the coronary angiography score decides whether surhery is indicated. Without a coronary angiography the patient does not qualify for bypass surgery.
