Welcome to Niamini

In this video, let’s understand Coronary Artery Bypass Grafting, often referred to as CABG also known as heart bypass surgery, is a procedure to restore blood flow to areas of your heart. Imagine your heart is like a house, and the blood vessels, called arteries, are the roads that carry oxygen to your heart. Sometimes, these roads can get blocked, causing problems When a road is blocked, it’s hard for the cars (oxygen-rich blood) to get through, and that’s bad for your heart.

This is where CABG surgery comes in, During CABG surgery, a skilled surgeon helps your heart by creating new roads or ‘bypasses’ around the blocked ones.

Here’s how it works: The surgeon takes a healthy blood vessel from another part of your body, like your leg or chest. This vessel becomes the new road for blood to travel. The surgeon then attaches one end of this new road to your heart, just past the blockage. This way, oxygen-rich blood can flow freely again.

Now, let’s discuss prevention.CABG can often be prevented or delayed by adopting a heart-healthy lifestyle: Maintaining a balanced diet low in saturated and trans fats.
Engaging in regular physical activity to maintain a healthy weight.
Managing stress through relaxation techniques.
Quitting smoking, as it is a major risk factor for Coronary Artery Disease.
Ensuring you get adequate sleep.
Almost 400,000 CABG surgeries are performed each year making it the most commonly performed major surgical procedure.

Success Rate: The overall success rate of CABG surgery is typically around 95% or higher.
CABG surgery significantly improves patient’s quality of life.

Alternative Treatments: In recent years, angioplasty and stent placement, have gained popularity as alternative to traditional CABG surgery. These procedures often result in shorter hospital stays and quicker recovery times.

Conclusion: CABG is a life-saving procedure that can help reestablish blood flow to your heart, leading to an enhanced quality of life. We hope this video has made CABG surgery easier to comprehend.
