What is By pass surgery?

Coronary artery bypass surgery creates a new path for blood to flow around a blocked or partially blocked artery in the heart. The surgery involves taking a healthy blood vessel from the chest or leg area.
At MGM Hospital CBD, our team of highly skilled cardiovascular surgeons and specialists perform coronary artery bypass surgery, also known as bypass surgery, using the latest technology and techniques to ensure the best possible outcomes for our patients.



It is essential that you get medical attention from a qualified healthcare professional if you experience any of the following By pass surgical symptoms:

  • atigue (severe tiredness)
  • Palpitations.
  • Abnormal heart rhythms.
  • Shortness of breath.
  • Swelling in the hands and feet.
  • Indigestion


Our medical staff at MGM hospital supports to evaluating the following causes of bypass surgery:

  • Coronary artery bypass surgery is performed on people who suffer from severe CAD
    • The coronary arteries lie on the heart's surface.
    • The most common cause of a partial blockage is cholesterol and fat deposits on the inner walls of the coronary arteries.


The following possible risks with bypass surgery are minimised at our MGM hospital:

  • Bleeding.
  • Death.
  • Heart attack due to a blood clot after surgery.
  • Infection at the site of the chest wound.
  • Long-term need for a breathing machine.
  • Irregular heart rhythms, called arrhythmias.
  • Kidney problems.
  • Memory loss or trouble thinking clearly, which often is temporary.
  • Stroke.


At our MGM hospital, all precautions are followed during the surgery:

  • Coronary artery bypass surgery is an open-heart procedure. The person is placed under general anesthetic.
  • Once the heart-lung machine has taken over for the heart, the surgeon will clamp the aorta (a major artery taking blood from the heart to the rest of the body).
  • Once the grafting is finished, the person is taken off the heart-lung machine.
  • New techniques of bypass surgery may be used in some cases.
  • After surgery, all patients will need to continue taking medications that decrease the work of the heart and reduce the risk of future heart attacks

How is it diagnosed?

Our healthcare specialists at MGM Hospitals perform the following surgical tests: Our doctor will perform a physical examination and blood tests to help with the diagnosis. Your doctor will recommend tests such as an exercise stress test, a cardiac nuclear scan, and cardiac catheterization. Catheterization indicates the severity of the disease and shows which arteries are affected.
Some of the tests that may be used to diagnose blockages in the coronary arteries include:
•Electrocardiogram (ECG)
•Coronary angiogram


How is it treated?

Coronary artery bypass grafting (CABG) is a complex surgical procedure that requires a high level of skill and expertise. At MGM Hospital CBD, this procedure is performed by a team of experienced cardiovascular and thoracic surgeons who specialize in heart surgery. During the procedure, the patient is given general anesthesia to ensure they are asleep and do not feel any pain. The surgical team then creates a new route for blood to flow around the blocked or narrowed section of the artery by grafting a healthy blood vessel from another part of the patient's body onto the heart. Our team of surgeons and anesthesiologists are highly trained and experienced in managing the complex anesthesia needs of CABG patients, ensuring a safe and comfortable surgical experience. After the surgery, patients receive comprehensive care and monitoring in our state-of-the-art cardiac care unit, staffed by a dedicated team of cardiac nurses and rehabilitation specialists. We provide personalized care and rehabilitation plans to help each patient achieve a successful recovery and return to their normal activities as soon as possible.


The surgeon makes an incision in the chest, typically in the center or left side, to access the heart.

Preparing the graft

he surgeon identifies a healthy blood vessel from another part of the body, such as the leg or chest wall. This blood vessel will be used as the graft to bypass the blocked or narrowed artery.

Creating the bypass

he surgeon will then make an opening in the blocked or narrowed artery and attach one end of the graft to the opening. The other end of the graft is then attached to another part of the coronary artery, creating a new pathway for blood to flow around the blockage.

Closing the incision

Once the bypass is complete, the surgeon will close the incision in the chest with sutures or staples.


The patient is closely monitored in the hospital for several days after the surgery to ensure that there are no complications. Most patients will need to stay in the hospital for 3-5 days after the surgery and will need several weeks of recovery time before returning to normal activities.
