Frequently Asked Questions:


What is Coronary Artery Bypass Surgery(CABG)?

Coronary Artery Bypass Surgery (CABG) of the heart is performed to re-route the blood supply due to the blockage of blood vessels of the heart called coronary arteries. This procedure involves a healthy blood vessel taken from arm or leg or chest and connecting it beyond the blocked arteries of the heart. This bypass heart surgery will not cure the heart disease but it can save the patient from the symptoms of the blocked blood vessel and increases the life expectancy.

  1. Blockage of arteries (Coronary artery disease)
  2. Decreased blood flow to the heart (Ischemia)
  3. Formation of plaque around the walls of arteries (Atherosclerosis)
  4. Pain in the chest (Angina)
  5. Shortness of breath, etc

What is the stepwise procedure for performing Coronary Artery Bypass Surgery(CABG)?

Coronary Artery Bypass surgery involves the following steps:

  1. General anesthesia will be given to avoid pain during the surgery.
  2. An incision in the middle of the chest, a cardiopulmonary bypass machine is connected to you to circulate the oxygenated blood throughout the body during the surgery. 
  3. The body temperature is lowered using a cooling technique to reduce the amount of oxygen needed by your heart. This helps in suspending the body's processes and making the heart surgery possible. It also helps in reducing the risk of heart or brain damage due to lack of oxygen.
  4. A healthy blood vessel from the chest wall/arm/leg is removed by the surgeon and placed near the blocked or damaged artery. This removed blood vessel is called graft and is attached to the blocked or damaged blood vessel.
  5. After completion of the process, the surgeon will remove the heart-lung machine and the function of the bypass is monitored. Once the bypass starts functioning, the incision will be closed with the sutures and bandage and shifted to ICU.
