A type of open heart surgery in which pieces of a vein or artery are used to route blood flow around a blockage in one or more of the arteries that supply oxygen to the heart muscle.
An operation using arterial or venous conduits inserted between aorta and the coronary artery beyond the narrowing.
open-heart surgery in which the rib cage is opened and a section of a blood vessel is grafted from the aorta to the coronary artery to bypass the blocked section of the coronary artery and improve the blood supply to the heart
Common surgical procedure to create an alternate route around a narrowed or blocked coronary artery using grafted vessels from the chest or leg.
the operation in which blocked coronary arteries are bypassed, usually with veins from the legs.
An operation performed to get past blocked arteries of the heart and deliver blood to areas that aren't receiving enough.
Abbreviated CABG. A form of bypass surgery that can create new routes around narrowed and blocked coronary arteries, permitting increased blood flow to deliver oxygen and nutrients to the heart muscle. Coronary artery bypass graft is an option for selected groups of patients with significant narrowings and blockages of the heart arteries. The bypass graft for a CABG can be a vein from the leg or an inner chest-wall artery. CABG surgery is one of the most commonly performed major operations. Coronary artery disease develops because of hardening of the arteries ( atherosclerosis) that supply blood to the heart muscle. Diagnostic tests prior to (and after) CABG include the electrocardiogram (EKG), stress test, echocardiogram, and coronary angiography.
a surgical procedure in which a healthy blood vessel is transplanted from another part of the body into the heart to replace or bypass a diseased vessel.
An operation performed to circumvent blocked coronary arteries and deliver/redirect blood to areas of the heart receiving insufficient blood flow. More than 350,000 Americans undergo coronary bypass each year. Also referred to as coronary bypass surgery.
A type of heart surgery (also called open heart surgery) that transplants a section of a vessel from another part of the body (usually from the leg or breast) to make a detour around a blockage in a coronary artery. The patient may be placed on a heart-lung bypass machine that lets a surgeon work on the non-beating heart.
an operation that uses arteries and veins in the body to re-route blood around blockages in the heart vessels to improve blood supply to areas of the heart.
surgical procedure, usually open-chest, where blocked blood vessels are "bypassed" by a vein or artery which allows blood to flow around the obstruction, to improve blood flow and heart function.
a surgical procedure used in individuals with significant narrowings and blockages of coronary arteries to create new routes around narrowed and blocked arteries, permitting increased blood flow to the heart muscle. The bypass graft for a CABG can be a vein from the leg or an inner chest wall artery.
refers to a surgery performed to relieve ischemia by providing improved myocardial perfusion beyond areas of coronary stenosis. This surgery may be indicated to improve long-term survival, presumably by preventing myocardial infarction and preserving left ventricular function.
also known as: CABG, "Cabbage". Surgery done to bypass the blocked coronary artery. Uses a vein from the leg or chest to carry the blood as "a bridge" around the blocked coronary artery.
Surgical reconstruction of the arteries supplying the heart.
Surgical procedure that establishes a shunt that allows blood to travel from the aorta to a branch of the coronary artery at a point past an obstruction. Utilized to bypass atherosclerotic vessels and restore blood supply to the heart
