What is Coronary Artery Bypass Grafting (CABG)?

A coronary artery bypass graft (CABG) is a surgical procedure that helps follow the blood around a section of blocked coronary heart disease. In this surgical procedure, the cardiac surgeon will take a vein or artery from a patient's chest, leg or arm and grafts it on to the blocked artery.

There are several types of coronary artery bypass grafting (CABG).

  1. Traditional Coronary Artery Bypass Grafting
  2. Off-Pump Coronary Artery Bypass Grafting
  3. Minimally Invasive Direct Coronary Artery Bypass Grafting

Symptoms of coronary artery disease may include:

  • Chest pain
  • Fatigue
  • Palpitations
  • Abnormal heart rhythms
  • Shortness of breath

Risk factor of coronary artery disease may include:

  • Age (50 years and older)
  • Diabetes
  • Breathing problems
  • Chronic lung disease
  • Kidney failure
  • Blocking coronary artery

 

  • The patient is required to go for PSC ( Pre-surgery check-up )  to do some blood test, ECG and ECH for Cardiac check-up and urine tests to know he /she is fit for Coronary Artery Bypass surgery or not.
  • Before the operation, you’ll be asked to sign a consent form, which gives the surgeon permission to carry out the treatment.
  • The cardiac surgeon should be informed about any medication that the patient may be taking.
  • The patient is admitted to the hospital on same days before the procedures and advised to remain empty stomach/Fasting.
  • Thinners medicines have to stop before ten days of surgery.

Before surgery, the cardiac surgeon and anaesthesia doctors will guide you about benefits and risk factor of Coronary Artery Bypass Grafting surgery.

Step 1 – Anesthesia: Coronary Artery Bypass Grafting surgery takes usually take several hours by giving general anaesthesia.

Step 2 – The incision

  1. The cardiac surgeon will make a ( 6 -8 inch)   incision down the centre of the chest, along with the breastbone.
  2. Then the cardiac surgeon slowly spreads open the rib cage to enter the heart.
  3. When the patient chest is opened, on that time the patient heart is temporarily stopped and the surgeon maintains the blood circulates to the whole body with the help of a heart-lung machine.
  4. The cardiac surgeon will take blood vessels from your parts of the body and make a new pathway to increase the blood flowing to the heart.
  5. The surgeon may use following coronary bypass surgery techniques’ Coronary Artery Bypass Grafting or Minimally Invasive Direct Coronary Artery Bypass Grafting

Step 3 – Closing the incisions: The cardiac surgeon will flap the skin with the help of Sutures, skin adhesives, tapes or clips close the skin incisions and put the dressing on your wounds.

Coronary bypass surgery is a major surgery. Patients recovering from CABG surgery can take between 6 to 12 weeks. The cardiac surgeon will give complete instruction on General Post-Operative and Valve Surgery care. Advise you to monitored patient heart, blood pressure, breathing and other vital signs.  Follow up by routine investigation. Take medication regularly.

Coronary Artery Bypass Success Rate has grown to a very high percentage over the last few decades. Here are some bypass surgery success rate figures. Open heart surgeries are generally riskier and while the bypass surgery success rate for these are still above 90%, they are not as high as the 97% bypass success rate of minimally invasive procedures.

  • Are you a board-certified Cardiac surgeon?
  • Does your hospital certify to perform CABG surgery?
  • Am I a good patient for you to this CABG procedure?
  • Let me know success rates and how long time will take for recovery?
  • What treatment plan do you recommend? Why?
  • What are my options if I am not satisfied with the outcome of my CABG surgery?
  • How will long time take this CABG surgery?
  • What are risk factors for this type of CABG surgery?
  • How long will it take to recover?
  • Do I have stitches, staples, and/or bandages?
  • Do I have a scar or other permanent effects from the CABG surgery?
  • What type of results can I expect?
  • Do I need to go another surgery in the future?
  • Do I need any follow-up appointments or tests after CABG surgery?
  • What are the main differences between a conventional CABG surgery procedure, a beating heart CABG surgery procedure, and a MICS CABG surgery procedure?
  • What is the difference between traditional harvesting techniques and EVH?
  • What are the clinical benefits of Endoscopic Vessel Harvesting (EVH)?
  • What is the difference between on-pump and off-pump coronary artery bypass graft (CABG) surgery?
  • Where do the vessels used in coronary artery bypass graft (CABG) surgery come from?
  • What is Endoscopic Radial Artery Harvesting (ERAH)
