Who will consider undergoing the CABG?
Coronary artery bypass grafting may be indicated when a coronary angiogram shows >50% stenosis in the presence of any of the following:

  • Severe angina which is unresponsive to medical therapy
  • Marked ST depression of exercise ECG
  • left main stem stenosis
  • Severe triple vessel disease
  • Angina with left ventricle dysfunction
Top
What is the objective of the procedure?
The objective of the procedure is to relieve symptoms of coronary artery disease, including angina, enable the patient to resume a normal lifestyle and to lower the risk of a heart attack or other heart problems.

How long should I stay for Heart Bypass Surgery?
You should stay at least a month to complete a whole process. On your arrival day, you should stay in your hotel to relax from a long flight and have a surgery on the following day. Normally, Heart Bypass Surgery requires 7-10 days in hospital. Post operative check up will be done afterward.

How is the surgery performed?
From the patient�s own arteries and veins located in the chest, leg or arm. The graft goes around the blocked artery (or arteries) to create new pathways for oxygen-rich blood to flow to the heart.
Heart Bypass Surgery (CABG) is done by using a heart-lung machine to pump blood. As the alternative, off-pump coronary artery bypass (OPCAB) surgery allows the surgery to be performed without stopping the heart and it is found that blood transfusion is reduced. Surgeons will detach and attach the artery to the area below the blocked area.
Top
What are the procedures following the surgery?
Your heart rate and blood pressure will be continuously monitored. Intravenous medicines injected through a vein are often given to regulate blood circulation and blood pressure. Full recovery from traditional CABG may take 6 to 12 weeks or more. You may return to work after 6 weeks. but not for the job which requires physical strength.

What are the common risks and complications?
  • Stroke for elderly people.
  • Fatigue and sleep difficulty .
  • Constipation, muscle pain and swelling in the area where the vein was removed
  • Infection
  • Chest pain
  • Fever
Top
What are the alternative procedures?
Minimally Invasive CABG:
Other alternative procedures of minimally invasive coronary artery bypass surgery have been recently developed.
Off-pump coronary artery bypass surgery (OPCAB) is a procedure of performing bypass surgery without the use of the heart-lung machine. Continuous refinements to OPCAB have resulted in minimally invasive direct coronary artery bypass surgery (MIDCAB) which is a technique of performing bypass surgery through approximately small 5-10 cm incision.

What are the advantages ?
Advantages of minimally invasive surgery:
  • smaller incision and scars
  • shorter hospital stay - typically 3-4 days
  • shorter recovery time
  • reduced bleeding
  • reduced chances of infection
  • reduced pain and trauma
