Low Cost Bypass


Coronary Artery Bypass Grafting is an operation in which a blood vessel is taken from your chest, leg or forearm and grafted (attached) to your coronary artery to let blood “detour” past a narrowing or blockage in this artery. It is used to improve blood flow to your heart muscle, when blood flow reduces due to coronary heart disease (CHD). CABG is a common and successful way to improve the health of people with CHD.

Heart Bypass treatment in Desun Hospital Kolkata


Doctors have advised CABG for your Dad. But you live out of India and you’re wondering what the cost of Bypass Surgery in India is? Stop worrying. Relax, and come to DESUN Hospital.

With 2 Digital Cath Labs, 6 Dedicated Cardiac Operating Theatres, 54 Post-operative Cardiac ITU beds, DESUN performs the highest number of advanced heart procedures and surgeries with the highest success rate at a cost which is the lowest in Kolkata,India.

With top class cardiologists and cardiac surgeons adopting the latest technologiesfor heart surgeries, DESUN is considered No. 1 in heart operations. One such example is the “Beating Heart Arterial Bypass Surgery”. Using this technique, the heart is not stopped during bypass (CABG); it continues to beat throughout the operation. Moreover, instead of taking veins from the leg (as is usually done), arteries from the chest and arms are used for this bypass. Normally,vein bypass lasts for 10 years whereas Arterial Bypass helps you live longer as it lasts for 25 years (arteries being better than veins). Also there are no scars on the legs of the patient.

DESUN's Guide to help reduce risk of further heart problems


What is Heart Bypass (CABG)?

Heart Bypass is a surgical procedure to restore normal blood flow to an obstructed coronary artery. In Coronary Artery Bypass Grafting (CABG), popularly called “Heart Bypass”, healthy veins or arteries from the patient’s body are grafted to create a bypass channel that ensures proper blood & oxygen flow to the heart. When blood flow reduces due to coronary heart disease (CHD), these arteries or veins, often taken from your leg or forearm, are grafted (attached) to the coronary artery to let blood “detour” past a narrowing or blockage in this artery.


Are there Different Types of Heart Bypass (CABG)?

Depending on the patient’s heart condition, the doctor will recommend one of the following types of bypass surgeries:

  • Single bypass: Recommended when only one artery is blocked.
  • Double bypass: Recommended when two arteries are blocked.
  • Triple bypass: Recommended when three arteries are blocked.
  • Quadruple bypass: Recommended when all four arteries are blocked.

Based on technique, there are two types of Coronary Artery Bypass Surgeries (CABGs):

  • On Pump CABG (Traditional Bypass Surgery): The pumping and oxygenation functions of the heart are supported by a heart-lung machine, while medications are given to induce cardioplegia (temporary paralysis of the heart muscle). This ensures that the heart is completely at rest while the surgeon performs the bypass surgery.
  • Off Pump CABG (Beating Heart Bypass Surgery): Here the heart continues to perform its pumping and oxygenation functions without inducing cardioplegia. The section of the heart where the bypass is needed is stabilized and operated on while the rest of the heart keeps beating. It is as safe as the other procedure with reduced risk of stroke, bleeding and renal failure.
  • Off-Pump LIMA-RIMA Y CABG (Arterial Beating Heart Bypass Surgery): This procedure is done on beating heart using only arteries as grafts and not veins (total arterial bypass grafts). It uses the 2 mammary arteries of the chest to construct a “Y” shaped graft and hence, no cuts are required to be made on the patient’s legs or arms. Arterial Bypass helps you live longer as it lasts for 25 years.
  • Minimally Invasive Direct CABG: It is similar to an off-pump CABG, but instead of a large incision (cut) to open the chest bone, few small incisions of 5 to 10 cm are made in the chest area between the ribs. This procedure is used when the blockage is in the front portion of the heart. However, it is not done for triple or quadruple bypass.

What is the procedure for Heart Bypass?

In a Heart Bypass, the graft creates a new route for blood to travel to the heart. If the patient has multiple blockages, the surgeon may conduct one or more bypass procedures during the same surgery. The usual flow of the procedure is:

  • Patient is put under general anesthesia for the surgery and vitals are stabilized.
  • A breathing tube is placed in your lungs through your throat and is connected to a ventilator.
  • An incision is made on the chest followed by cutting open the patient’s ribcage to access the heart.
  • An artery or vein is taken from your body to create the bypass passage. Depending on the procedure it can be done in the following ways:
    Vein Harvesting: In case of vein based Heart Bypass surgery, veins from the leg called the Saphenous Veins are used. These veins are harvested from an incision on the leg from the groin to the ankle. It is then used to connect the aorta to the coronary artery below the site of blockage. Minimally invasive procedures lead to less scarring and a faster recovery.
    Artery Harvesting: In case of Arterial Bypass (RIMA LIMA Y), these arteries for graft are accessed through the same chest incision used to access the heart. Based on the patient’s condition, the radial (arm) or gastroepiploic (stomach) arteries may also be used.
  • Post grafting, blood flow to the heart is restored. Usually, heart starts beating voluntarily. If not, then mild electric shocks are used to trigger the process.
  • The surgeon uses wires to close up the previously opened chest cage, similar to a broken bone repair. Finally the incision is closed and the breathing tube removed when the patient is able to breathe normally.

Why is Heart Bypass done?

CABG is a commonly prescribed course of action for people diagnosed with CHD. This procedure is only done when Angioplasty is ruled out due to excessive blockage or weak and narrow passage of the arteries. The common factors to be considered are:

  • Complaints of severe chest pain, caused by shortage of blood flow to the heart due to narrowing of the arteries supplying blood to the heart muscle, during light exercise or even at rest.
  • The patient has more than one plaque blocked coronary artery, and the heart's main pumping chamber — the left ventricle — isn't functioning well.
  • The left main coronary artery is severely narrowed restricting supply of blood and oxygen to the left ventricle.
  • Isolated artery blockages do not allow space for temporarily inserting and inflating a tiny balloon to widen the artery (angioplasty). This applies especially when there is a history of angioplasty and the artery has narrowed again (restenosis).
  • In the unlikely event of a heart attack, where the patient is not responding to other treatments.

Bypass surgery is advised by cardiac surgeons to restore healthy heart functioning. This procedure will ensure:

  • Improved pumping action to restore blood flow to the heart muscle.
  • Reduced symptoms of CHD, such as angina.
  • Reduced risk of further heart problems and longer survival.
  • Improved quality of life to resume an active lifestyle.

Even with coronary bypass surgery, the patient will need to make lifestyle changes after surgery. Medications are prescribed routinely after coronary bypass surgery to lower the blood cholesterol levels, reduce the risk of developing a blood clot and help the heart.


Why act immediately?

In the event of a heart attack, time is of essence. Therefore, early diagnosis and treatment reduces chances of complications in surgical treatment and increases possibility of survival.

Patient’s age, health, and the severity of angina decides this treatment. If unattended it may lead to a life-threatening heart attack due to blood clots caused from rising angina pain.

This surgery is done when coronary arteries become blocked or damaged. These arteries supply the heart with oxygenated blood. If blocked or blood flow restricted, it may gradually lead to complete heart failure.

CABG is prescribed to patients with CHD. During CABG, a healthy artery or vein from the body is connected, to the blocked coronary artery by passing it around the blocked portion of the coronary artery and creating a new unobstructed passage for healthy blood circulation.

Majority of beating heart bypass surgery or off pump coronary artery bypass surgery patients experience improvement or complete relief of their symptoms and remains symptom-free for several years.


What is “Beating Heart Technique” in CABG?

When heart bypass surgery (CABG) started in the 1980s, the technique involved stopping the heart and transferring the heart functions to a machine called the Heart Lung Machine. After the bypass surgery was completed, the heart was reactivated and the heart functions were shifted back from the Heart Lung Machineto the original human heart.

In the late 1990s, a new technique was developed in USA and later adopted in India, called the Beating Heart Technique. Here, the portion of the heart where bypass needs to be done is slowed down by a special equipment known as STAR. The surgeon then performs the bypass with the heart beating very slowly. After the bypass, the STAR is removed and the portion of the heart that was slowed down then starts beating normally. There are tremendous advantages of the Beating Heart Technique” in terms of faster recovery, lower risks and so on. However, the Heart Lung Machine is still kept as a stand-by during all heart bypass surgeries (CABG) even when the Beating Heart Technique is used, so that the surgeon canrevert back to the conventional technique, if need be.

At DESUN, over 95% heart bypass surgeries are performed using the Beating Heart Technique. Even is USA, doctors have not been successful in performing more than 70% of bypass surgeries using this technique. The entire surgical team, including the cardiac surgeon, cardiac anaesthetist, perfusionist, medical physicist, OT nursing and OT technicians, has to be highly skilled and efficient to perform the Beating Heart Bypass Surgeries on such a consistent basis as in DESUN.


Why do I need Bypass Surgery?

You need bypass surgery because one or more of your coronary arteries has become too narrow or blocked, and enough blood cannot reach your heart muscle. This is probably because you have CHD.

Your doctor will discuss your treatment options with you. He will tell you if bypass surgery is the most suitable form of treatment to improve blood flow to your heart muscle and reduce the risk of further heart problems.


What are the benefits of bypass surgery?

Bypass surgery will improve blood flow to your heart muscle and reduce your symptoms of CHD, such as angina. In time, you may feel healthier and more active than you were before the surgery. Your risk of further heart problems will also be reduced to a great extent.


DESUN's Guide to help reduce risk of further heart problems:

The things that you do and the choices you make can greatly reduce your risk of heart problems in the future, including heart attacks.

The most important things you can do are to:

  • Properly take medicines prescribed by your doctor
  • Quit smoking
  • Eat healthy
  • Be physically active
  • Keep a check on your blood pressure and cholesterol
  • Maintain a healthy body weight

People with diabetes should generally aim to maintain their blood glucose levels within the normal non-diabetic range and follow individual advice from their doctor.
