WHAT IS A CABG?


A CABG(Coronary Artery Bypass Graft) is not a virtual cabbage. It is pronounced cabbage, but is far off from its meaning. This is a surgical procedure done to improve blood supply to the heart. Blood vessels are taken from the leg or chest area and attached to the ones around the heart. A bypass may consist of more than one vessel.
