Cardiac Surgery

Coronary artery bypass grafting (CABG) is the most normal kind of heart surgery which supports the blood flow to the heart. Surgeons can make use of CABG to treat people who have critical coronary heart disease (CHD). For the heart to work well, blood should flow in only one direction for which the heart's valves help to make this possible. Healthy valves close and open in a specific way as the heart pumps blood. Every valve has one lot of folds called leaflets. The leaflets open to enable blood to flow from one heart apartment into another or into the arteries. Then the leaflets close tightly to stop the blood from flowing backward. Cardiac surgery is done to fix leaflets that don’t open as wide as they should. This can occur if they become thick or join together. As a result, insufficient blood flows through the valve.
