What is a coronary bypass surgery?

Coronary bypass surgery is a surgery of the heart. It uses blood vessels taken from another part of the body to bypass the blocked or narrowed section of the coronary (heart) arteries. The surgery helps people whose coronary arteries have narrowed or have been blocked due to mass material called plaque. Bypass allows greater oxygen flow through the heart muscle.

How do the arteries of your heart become blocked?

Over time, fat, cholesterol and other substances build up on artery walls forming plaques. When the plaque separates, a clot is formed, the blood flow through the heart is blocked and it may lead to chest discomfort called angina and heart attack.
