CABG is the surgical bypassing of blocked heart blood vessels. CABG improves blood flow to the heart and CABG Surgery is performed by a cardiothoracic surgeon. Surgeon is used to treat people who have severe coronary heart disease (CHD) or serious chest pain (angina) and CHD is a disease in which a waxy substance called plaque (plak) builds up inside the coronary arteries. These arteries supply oxygen-rich blood to your heart.
Over time, plaque can harden or rupture (break open). Hardened plaque narrows the coronary arteries and reduces the flow of oxygen-rich blood to the heart. This can cause serious chest pain (angina).If the plaque ruptures, a blood clot can form on its surface. A large blood clot can mostly or completely block blood flow through a coronary artery. This is the most common cause of a heart attack.
During CABG, The surgeon attaches a healthy artery or vein from the body is connected (grafts) to the diseased heart artery, rerouting blood around the blockage in the same way a road detour re-routes traffic around road construction. This creates a new path for oxygen-rich blood to flow to the heart muscle.
Surgeons can bypass multiple blocked coronary arteries during one surgery.
