Coronary Artery Bypass Grafting (CABG)

Coronary artery disease (CAD) causes an inadequate supply of blood to the heart muscle – a potentially damaging condition. Surgeons have the ability to reroute coronary arteries and restore blood flow to the heart, helping people with this disease lead healthier lives.

Coronary artery bypass grafting is a common heart procedure that creates a new path for blood to flow around (bypass) the blockage in an artery so it can get to your heart. There are two bypass surgical procedures for coronary artery disease: (1) beating heart surgery and (2) arrested heart surgery.
