Heart bypass surgery is for coronary artery atherosclerotic disease. Arteries and veins are used as bypass grafts to bring new blood supply into coronary arteries beyond these blockages.

Yes.: A calcified aorta typically makes the procedure more challenging, mainly because most heart surgery requires a "bypass" machine to keep blood perfusing the body. The"return" cannula is typically inserted into the root of aorta. Calcified aorta makes this harder and riskier to do. Other options exist however, the femoral artery is ofter used if aorta severe. ...Read more
Many vessels blocked: The two standard reasons for a coronary artery bypass operation are "triple-vessel" disease in which 3 or more of the primary or secondary vessels have significant blockages and "left-main" disease in which the main left coronary artery has a major blockage before it branches into the left anterior descending (lad) & circumflex arteries. There are other indications depending on the situation. ...Read more
Can an angioplasty fail for any reason? What happens if it doesn’t work? What are the other treatment options? Will I have to have heart bypass surgery?
3 coronaries bypasse:
The heart, in general has 3 major arteries
(left anterior, circumflex and right)
but there can be a lot of variation and branches like highways and streets to get the blood traffic distributed.
We bypass those with wrecks- stenosis obstructions.
3-4 is common on the average.
More is possible depending on the anatomy and disease. ...Read more
Define dangerous: It is major surgery. People who need it are already in danger, in danger of a heart attack, or a sudden life threatening rhythm disturbance. Every case is individualized; some patients (and mds) may opt for medical management. The best surgical results come from places and docs that have high volume (not a "factory"), not the occasional case. Can get info state by state re: success and complicatio. ...Read more
Not very: As expected, the first few days are rough and intravenous narcotics are given to relieve pain and promote sleep. By a week the pain is usually just soreness and easily controlled with oral meds. By a month, most people really don't have much pain or any at all. For some, the vein harvesting site in the leg stays sore longer than the chest. ...Read more
Improves blood flow: Bypass surgery is done for blockages in the heart arteries. Essentially we add more blood vessels to the heart to deliver blood to the areas blocked off. We go around the blockages (bypass). We're plumbers :). We put new pipe in by hooking up before and after the blockages. Unfortunately I can't go to home depot and buy pipe so we get it from veins in legs and arteries from breast bone and arms. ...Read more

The answer is everything in moderation. The american heart association and butter busters are reasonable places to start.
Watch the salt (adjust to the natural taste of things), minimize the fats, if not off limits a bit of red wine is good, all combined with graduated exercise.
For more detail, ask your doctor about a nutritionist or for additional materials he/she may have prepared. ...Read more
There is no set age: However, as with any medical procedure, one must weight out the risks/benefit ration. As one gets on in age, the risks of undergoing this procedure increase, perhaps to the point where the risk of death outweighs any potential benefit. The doctor and patient must then explore all possible options. Also remember, some 80 year olds are healthier than others. ...Read more

It depends.: Bypass surgery helps to enhance blood flow to the heart muscle. It doesn't cure the disease. Prognosis depends on the extent of heart damage which may have occurred. It is vital that risk factors for progression of plaque buildup be controlled. Cessation of smoking is essential. Control of hypertension and cholesterol are important. Diabetics must achieve good control. Exercise is important too. ...Read more
See below: It is not a matter of what age you have to be. The disease tends to be more likely to be present in older people. So as you get older you are more likely to need it. If necessary, the surgery can even be done in very old patients so that age is not really a limiting factor. A child would very rarely need this type of surgery. ...Read more
Amiodarone: This is a drug to stabilize the heart rhythm. ...Read more
Depends: The answer depends on several factors mainly having to do with how healthy the heart muscle is and how healthy the other organs are such as kidneys, lungs and blood vessels to other organs. It could range from low (2 -3%) to high (>25%). ...Read more

Stepwise: In short, after anesthesia is induced, the chest is opened and in some cases, the heart and lungs are bypassed (some are not done this way). Then arteries or veins are used/harvested to bypass heart blockages and then the chest is then closed and anesthesia is reversed. It is a bit more complicated, but this is the best brief answer I can give. ...Read more
