Coronary Artery Bypasses Graft (CABG) Surgery is a procedure in which one or more blocked coronary arteries are bypassed by a vessel graft to refurbish normal blood flow to the heart. Grafts are taken from the arteries in the patient's chest, arms or legs and are used to create a new path for oxygenated blood to flow to the heart.
Angioplasty is a technique that mechanically opens narrowed or blocked blood vessels. This technique uses a device called a balloon catheter. The catheter tube is inserted between the blocked portions of the vessel. The balloon is then used to inflate the catheter and hold the vessel open to promote better blood flow. A tube may then be placed to keep the vessel opened while the catheter is removed.
