Reasons for Procedure

Atherosclerosis is a disease of the arteries. Cholesterol and fatty deposits build up on the walls of the arteries. This restricts blood flow. When the build up happens in the heart, it may lead to chest pain, called angina, or heart attack . Lifestyle changes and medicines can be used to treat atherosclerosis. When the blockage gets too severe, a CABG is done to re-establish blood supply to the heart muscle. It is often recommended in cases of:

  • Severe blockage in the main artery or in several blood vessels that supply blood to your heart muscle
  • Persistent chest pain ( angina ) not improved with drug therapy or other procedures
