Coronary Artery Bypass Surgery
Nowadays the coronary artery disease (CAD) or coronary heart disease is quite common. The diseases arise due to presence of a waxy substance called plaque in the main artery that supplies blood and oxygen to your heart. This build up happens over the years. The plaque heightens the risk of heart-attack and stroke.
You can counter this disease by a positive outlook, a lifestyle change, angioplasty, angiogenesis, medication and so on.
Surgery for Coronary Artery Disease:
If simple lifestyle changes didn’t help you, it is better to consult one of our specialist surgeons for a Coronary Artery Bypass Surgery.
What the surgeon essentially does is, remove the obstructing artery for better blood flow to the heart. For this process, the surgeon takes a healthy piece of vein from the leg or artery from the wrist or chest. S/he would then carefully re-attach this new artery/ vein segment to the coronary artery, usually above and below the constricted area of the artery. This would allow blood to bypass the blockage. It is common for such patients to have more than one bypass in such cases.
The overall result is great for the patient. Most of our patients remain symptom-free for years to come. Regular check ups will rule out any possibility of blockage formation in these grafted arteries/ veins. Also, it is advised to maintain a healthier lifestyle of moderate exercise and clean eating.
