What is a Coronary Artery Bypass Graft Surgery (CABG)?

Coronary arteries are blood vessels that supply the heart with oxygen and nutrients. Coronary Artery Bypass Surgery (CABS) is a procedure used to increase blood flow to the heart muscle in people who have coronary heart disease and have severely narrowed or blocked coronary arteries. The procedure entails connecting blood vessels from different parts of the body to the coronary arteries outside the blockage. The blood will then circulate over or around the blockage, bypassing it. If more than one artery is blocked, a bypass graft can be needed.

Why and when is a CABG done?

The heart does not receive enough blood supply when one or more coronary arteries become partially or fully blocked. Ischemic heart disease, or coronary artery disease, is a condition in which the blood vessels in the heart get blocked (CAD). It can result in angina (chest pain) or a heart attack (myocardial infarction).

What happens during the Surgery?

  • Dr. Kamlesh Jain & his team perform the surgery
  • Depending on how many blood vessels need to be bypassed, the procedure takes three to six hours.
  • To allow the surgeon to see the heart, a cut is made in the center of the chest near the breastbone.
  • Arteries from the chest (right and left internal mammary arteries) are harvested and LIMA-RIMA-Y is done.
  • These LIMA and RIMA are connected to blocked coronary arteries beyond the block on the beating heart
  • Your chest is stitched closed after the completion of grafting

What happens after the Surgery?

  • You will be admitted to the Intensive Care Unit (ICU), where you will be monitored for 2-3 days or as long as necessary. An electrocardiogram (ECG) monitor can continuously record the heart's rhythm.
  • Any lung problems, such as a collapsed lung, infection, or pneumonia, can be treated with respiratory therapy. Every few hours, a nurse or therapist will assess you with breathing exercises. If you need pain medication, request it.

What are the risks associated with the Surgery?

    If you are fit and under the age of 60, you have a 1% chance of developing severe complications. When you have general anesthesia, there are still some risks. Consult your doctor about these dangers. During and after the operation, there is a possibility of stroke. In the bypass vessels, new blockages may form. This might necessitate a second heart catheterization and surgery. As a result, it's important to make lifestyle improvements to reduce the chance of another blockage.
