Coronary Artery Bypasses Hardback
Edited by Russell T. Hammond, James B. Alton
Coronary bypass surgery is a procedure to allow blood to flow to the heart muscle despite blocked arteries.
Coronary bypass surgery uses a healthy blood vessel taken from your leg, arm, chest or abdomen and connects it to the other arteries in the heart so that blood is bypassed around the diseased or blocked area.
After a coronary bypass surgery, normal blood flow is restored.
Coronary bypass surgery is just one option to treat heart disease.
This book presents the latest research in this growing field.
