Heart Bypass Surgery (Coronary Artery Bypass Graft)

Heart bypass surgery or coronary artery bypass graft is a surgical procedure that is performed to relieve angina or reduce the risk that death will occur by coronary artery disease. Arteries or veins may be grafted from elsewhere in the body to bypass blocked or narrowed arteries, and improve blood supply to the heart muscles.

The heart is usually stopped for the duration of the procedure and cardiopulmonary bypass may be performed to take over heart and lung functions. Newer techniques that perform surgeries on beating hearts have also been developed.

Depending on the severity of the condition, a single bypass, double bypass, triple bypass or more may be done. Coronary artery bypass surgery is usually performed where the arterial walls have become thick due to deposition of plaque, calcification or when the arteries of the heart have lost their elasticity. This causes a deceased blood supply and may lead to a heart attack. The arteries or veins to be used in heart bypass may be harvested from the forearm, thigh, leg or chest.
