This is possibly the most common form of cardiac surgery and may also be known as heart bypass or bypass surgery. At the Heart Centre our consultants can offer both the 'on pump' and 'off pump' techniques. Your suitability for both these types of surgery can be discussed with your surgeon.
Coronary Artery Bypass Graft Surgery is often performed to relieve the symptoms of angina, which is a result of your coronary artery becoming occluded or narrowed with fatty deposits. Our surgeons use the newest techniques to harvest arteries or veins from elsewhere in the body. These are grafted to the coronary arteries bypassing narrowed arteries, improving the blood supply to the heart.
