Coronary artery bypass
In some patients, PTCA can be technically difficult or dangerous to perform.
In others, PTCA and clot-dissolving medications may fail to achieve reperfusion
or maintain open arteries. These patients may be considered for coronary artery
bypass grafting surgery. For more information, please see the Coronary Artery
Bypass Graft article.
