Am I a candidate for Coronary artery bypass?
Candidates for surgery have severe coronary heart disease or have blockages that can be treated with an angioplasty.
How do I prepare for the procedure?
Your specialist will perform an examination to learn about your medical history. You will be asked to stop eating and taking medication the midnight before the procedure.
What happens after the procedure?
You’ll be taken to an intensive care unit (ICU) for 1 or 3 days, where your heart rate, oxygen and blood pressure will be monitored. Depending on the number of bypass you could go home after 3 or 5 days.
How long will recovery take?
Specialists usually recommend using compression stocking on the legs to prevent the blood from clotting or poling. Also, lifestyle changes are required to maintain a healthy diet.
