Coronary bypass graft surgical procedure or CABG surgical treatment or Heart Bypass Surgery is surgical technique to treat obstructed heart blood vessels by bypassing the blocked area to treat heart illness. In this process, an extremely trained cardiac doctor aims to re-establish blood flow to heart muscle. In this surgery, a heart doctor, who is trained in CABG surgical procedure and minimally invasive CABG operation, takes out a fit blood vessel from the leg or arm or upper body of heart patient and attaches it to the additional arteries of the heart in order to circumvent the blocked blood vessel, improving the blood flow in the heart of patient.This surgery is usually done on beating heart using tissue stabilizer.
The minimal invasive CABG surgical procedure promotes early surgical recovery of patient and benefits the patient by operating through a small cut on the left chest .It avoids a cut on the sternum(breastbone) and leads to lesser complications and faster return to normal activity.
