Coronary Artery Bypass Grafting (CABG)

Coronary artery bypass grafting (CABG) creates an alternate route for blood to flow to the heart if the original artery has become blocked or damaged. A blood vessel from another part of your body, such as your leg, arm or chest, is inserted into the heart to bypass the blocked artery. More than one blocked artery can be repaired during this surgery.
