Coronary Artery Bypass Surgery News and Research

RSS
Coronary Artery Bypass is surgery in which a healthy blood vessel taken from another part of the body is used to make a new path for blood around a blocked artery leading to the heart. This restores the flow of oxygen and nutrients to the heart. Also called aortocoronary bypass and CAB.
