Coronary Bypass Grafting Surgery

What Are the Purposes & Benefits of This Procedure?

A coronary bypass graft is a surgery used to treat severe instances of coronary artery disease. This disease involves the narrowing of the coronary arteries through a buildup of fatty materials within their walls. The buildup that occurs limits the supply of oxygen-rich blood to the heart muscle and causes a variety of serious and life-threatening complications.

Fortunately, depending on the extent of the disease, age of the individual, the presence of other medical symptoms, and other factors, coronary bypass grafting surgery is often able to effectively help a variety of patients with coronary artery disease. By restoring normal or improved blood flow to the heart, this procedure has been shown to produce excellent results.

Healing Your Symptoms

Some symptoms of coronary artery disease are:

  • A noticeably higher level of fatigue
  • Pain or discomfort in the chest or other areas of the upper body
  • Palpitations
  • Abnormal heart rhythms
  • Difficulty breathing or shortness of breath
  • Nausea or vomiting
  • Lightheadedness or dizziness
  • Sweating or cold sweat

Through bypassing blocked coronary arteries with a blood vessel graft, you can heal past heart damage, improve the quality of your life, lower the risk of heart attacks in the future, and return to a more active lifestyle.
