Coronary Artery Bypass Grafting (CABG)

Coronary Artery Bypass Grafting (CABG) - What it is

​Coronary artery bypass grafting (CABG), also known as heart bypass surgery, is an open heart surgery. It is also a known treatment procedure for coronary artery disease (CAD). In this procedure, the surgeon removes a vein from the leg and/or an artery from the non-dominant arm and/or an artery from within the chest and sews it beyond the blockage so that blood can flow through the newly grafted vessel, bypassing the blocked coronary artery.
