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.

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.
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.
Depending on the patient’s heart condition, the doctor will recommend one of the following types of bypass surgeries:
Based on technique, there are two types of Coronary Artery Bypass Surgeries (CABGs):
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:
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:
Bypass surgery is advised by cardiac surgeons to restore healthy heart functioning. This procedure will ensure:
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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:
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.
