Heart Bypass Surgery

Heart bypass surgery, also called coronary artery bypass graft (CABG), is a type of surgery that is used to treat coronary heart disease. The goal of the surgery is to improve blood flow to the heart muscle by creating new routes around blocked arteries. It is a common treatment for heart diseases .

Each year, hundreds of thousands of people undergo heart bypass surgery. Giving anaesthesia to the patient, the procedure is performed when the arteries that supply blood to the heart become blocked or narrowed. Heart bypass surgery involves taking a section of a healthy artery from another part of the body and attaching it to the blocked artery. This creates a new ‘bypass’ for blood to flow around the blockage. 

During bypass surgery, the heart surgeon creates a new route for blood to flow around a blockage in your heart. This new route reroutes blood around the blocked artery to the rest of your heart. Recovery post-heart bypass surgery is a gradual process, with most patients staying in the hospital for 3-5 days to receive attentive care and monitoring during this crucial healing period.
