What is coronary artery bypass graft (CABG) surgery?
According to the American Heart Association, coronary artery bypass graft (CABG) surgeries
are among the most commonly performed major operations. CABG surgery is advised for selected groups of patients with significant narrowings and blockages of the heart arteries (coronary artery disease). CABG surgery creates new routes around narrowed and blocked arteries, allowing sufficient blood flow to deliver oxygen and nutrients to the heart muscle.
