Coronary Artery Bypass Grafting (CABG)
Coronary Artery Bypass Grafting (CABG) is a surgical procedure that treats Coronary Artery Disease, which is caused by the buildup of cholesterol plaque in the arteries, which leads to blockage of nutrient rich blood from reaching the heart muscles. The procedure is essentially used to connect a healthy blood vessel from another part of the body, to create a new pathway around the blocked one, to restore blood supply to the heart.
The surgery is mainly used to enhance or restore the flow of nutrient rich blood to the heart, in order for it to work to its full capacity. This reduces the risk of developing a heart attack or other heart diseases. The treatment provides relief to the angina, which improves the pumping ability of the heart to reduce the risk of heart attack and improve quality of life. Based on a patient’s symptoms, a type of CABG surgery may be indicated.
- Beating Heart Bypass Surgery: This is performed while the patient’s heart is still beating, which allows surgeons to perform multiple bypass grafts on all areas of the heart.
- On-Pump Bypass Surgery: A medication is used to temporarily stop the patient’s heart for the duration of the procedure. A heart-lung machine which has a pump, functions as the heart, while still keeping oxygen rich blood from circulating throughout the body.
There are certain steps that take place before, during, and after the coronary artery disease surgery, to ensure that you have a successful treatment.
The cardiologist first conducts a thorough medical examination, to ensure that your body is physically capable of undergoing the procedure. You may be asked to discontinue certain drugs 2-5 days before the procedure. Most patients are admitted to the hospital a day before the procedure, for constant monitoring.
The surgery has numerous benefits, which help treat Cardiac Artery Disease.
- Increased blood flow and pumping function to the heart
- Reduced symptoms of CAD
- Minimum OT hours
- Reduced risk of heart attack and heart disease
- Minimum scars post surgery
- Minimal or no use of blood transfusions
- Early discharge and early mobilization due to faster recovery
- Reduced ICU stay and early extubation
Though you will be thoroughly evaluated by the surgeon, to ensure minimized complications, the surgery does carry a few risks.
- Breathing Issues
