Coronary artery bypass surgery, also known as heart bypass or bypass surgery is a surgical procedure to restore normal blood flow to an obstructed coronary artery. The procedure involves taking a healthy blood vessel from the thigh, arm or chest and connecting it beyond the blocked arteries in the heart, thereby creating a bypass for improved blood flow. It is a major open-heart surgery indicated in patients with more than one diseased coronary artery.

 Diseased and narrowed heart valve which cannot be repaired/ replaced in cath lab can be repaired in an open-heart surgery. In this surgery, a large incision is made in the chest and the heart stopped for a time so that the surgeon can repair or replace the valve(s).

These are the surgeries performed on diseased blood vessels of the peripheries. Examples – Peripheral bypass, embolectomies, carotid endarteriotomies for prevention of strokes etc.
