Specialty surgeon complete packaged procedure.
A Coronary triple bypass heart surgery. Coronary triple bypass surgery is a procedure that restores blood flow to your heart muscle by diverting the flow of blood around a section of a blocked artery in your heart. It uses three healthy blood vessels taken from your leg, arm, chest, or abdomen and connects them to the other arteries in your heart so that blood is bypassed around the diseased or blocked area. After a coronary triple bypass surgery, normal blood flow is restored.
Coronary triple bypass surgery is just one option to treat heart disease. This surgery can help reduce your risk of having a heart attack. The surgery is usually performed with the heart stopped, necessitating the usage of cardiopulmonary bypass; techniques are available to perform CABG on a beating heart, so-called ‘off-pump’ surgery.
For many people who have coronary triple bypass surgery, symptoms such as chest pain and shortness of breath are reduced after having the surgery.
