Coronary artery bypass information and locations in Mexico

Coronary artery bypass or bypass surgery is a procedure that helps to improve the blood flow of the heart affected by blocked arteries. This is the most common type of surgery performed on the heart in the United States.
The bypass consists on using a healthy vein from another part of the body to bypass the blocked artery. During the procedure, your will be connected to a heart-lung machine that will keep moving blood and oxygen through the body. Then, your heart is stopped and cooled. One end of the graft will be connected to the ascending aorta and the other, below the blocked artery. Once the graft is checked, the blood flow to the heart is restores and the heart-lung machine is disconnected.
This surgery is considered if the blockage can’t be treated with an angioplasty.
