CABG risk: It is not clear from your description what type of surgery he is getting. I surmise that you mean coronary bypass surgery. Overall risks for patients like him in the STS database for patients who have had strokes or TIA and previous MI is > 96% survival. That is very very good for major procedures like this. Discuss with the heart surgeon for better guidance and risk stratification.
