A 40-year-old member asked:
What happens if a person had only a 40% chance of surviving heart by pass surgery how bad would they have to be?

50 years experience in Cardiology
Probability: Coronary bypass surgery is done with a great deal of success. To be quoted only a 40% chance of survival would imply very abnormal cardiorespiratory function. Other organ systems might also be quite abnormal.
