Coronary Artery Bypass Grafting

Coronary artery bypass graft (CABG) surgery was introduced in the 1950s, and still remains  a highly invasive, open surgical procedure. During CABG surgery blood vessel grafts are used to bypass  blocked arteries to restore blood flow. Although the most effective and most durable revascularization procedure,  CABG has significant limitations, including medical complications, such as stroke, multiple organ dysfunction, inflammatory response, respiratory failure and post-operative bleeding, each of which may result in death.  Currently, several minimally invasive surgical techniques are being developed to lessen the trauma of CABG procedures.
