Coronary Artery Bypass Grafting / Surgery


Coronary Artery Bypass Surgery in Hawaii

Coronary artery bypass grafting, is cardiac surgery that is needed if you have sustained a severe heart attack or have several blocked heart arteries. Your Hawaii cardiologist may have discussed this as an option in your treatment plan.

The coronary artery bypass grafting procedure, also known as CABG, is a heart surgery in which the surgeon will use the veins of the leg or arteries of the breast area to bypass the arteries in the heart which are blocked with plaque deposits. The coronary artery bypass surgery will restore blood flow to the heart. Coronary artery bypass grafting is traditionally done with circulatory arrest and use of cardio-pulmonary bypass machines. Nowadays, commonly coronary artery bypass grafting is done on a beating heart with or without cardio-pulmonary bypass.
