Coronary artery bypass surgery creates a new path for blood to flow around a blocked or partially blocked artery in the heart. The surgery involves taking a healthy blood vessel from the chest or leg area. The vessel is connected below the blocked heart artery. The new pathway improves blood flow to the heart muscle.

Other names for this surgery are:

  • Coronary artery bypass grafting.

  • CABG — pronounced "cabbage."

  • Coronary artery bypass graft surgery.

  • Heart bypass surgery.

  • Open heart surgery

Coronary artery bypass surgery doesn't cure the heart disease that caused a blockage, such as atherosclerosis or coronary artery disease. But it can reduce symptoms such as chest pain and shortness of breath. The surgery, commonly called CABG, may reduce the risk of heart disease-related death.

Why it's done

Coronary artery bypass surgery is done to restore blood flow around a blocked heart artery. The surgery may be done as an emergency treatment for a heart attack, if other immediate treatments aren't working.

Your health care provider might recommend coronary artery bypass surgery if you have:

  • A blockage in the left main heart artery. This artery supplies a lot of blood to the heart muscle.

  • Severe narrowing of the main heart artery.

  • Severe chest pain caused by narrowing of several heart arteries. The narrowing reduces blood flow to the heart even during light exercise or at rest.

  • More than one diseased heart artery and your lower left heart chamber doesn't work well.

  • A blocked heart artery that can't be treated with coronary angioplasty. This less-invasive treatment uses a balloon on the tip of a thin tube, called a catheter, to widen the artery. A small coil called a stent is typically used to keep the artery open.

  • An angioplasty with or without a stent that hasn't worked. For example, an artery narrowed again after stenting.
