Is It Safe To Wear Magnetic Bracelets After Heart Bypass
Yes: It should be okay for the vast majority of patients. Few patients have had CABG with distal and proximal anastomotic magnetic connectors and I am not sure if a magnetic bracelet will have any influence.See 1 more doctor answer
Always surgical risk: There is always some risk in any surgery or procedure. That being said, bypass surgery has been around a long time and the techniques have been proven to be relatively safe. If a bypass machine is used and they are relatively healthy, the risk for death or complication is only 1-2%.Complications include stroke and kidney/liver failure.If the surgery is not done, they may have higher chance of death.See 1 more doctor answer
Choice: There are risks to all surgeries, but your friend has no choice. The small surgical risk is much less of a problem than the damage caused by the blockage. If the artery fully occludes, that part of his heart will surely die, and probably so will your friend.
Wow: The widow maker? Better surgery than dead. Mortality is less than 5%. But never zero.
Yes: As long as they use sterile equipment to assure you don't get an infection. Go to a reputable practitioner with a good record.

Stents: Stents can fail after they have been placed if a clot forms in the stent or if the lining of the vessel grows into the stent in an overgrowth manner and causes obstruction of the stent. Rarely there is a tear in the blood vessel called a dissection which can happen when the stent is placed.
Artery blocked: A coronary artery has a blockage so that the heart muscle is not getting enough blood. A vein or artery is connected to the coronary artery past the blockage to restore blood flow.See 1 more doctor answer
Depends: Like any operation, length depends on complexity, comorbidities, and any immediate complications. Also, what do you mean by how long? How long does it take to do just the bypasses? How long of a time is spent on cardiopulmonary bypass? How long are you in the operating room? Etc. Having said that most bypass operations take from 3 to 6 hours "skin to skin" from incision to closing.See 1 more doctor answer
Death, Heart Failure: The worst consequence of all would be death, but others would include heart failure (a weak heart), infection (mediastinitis), pericardial effusion (fluid around the heart), stroke, heart attack and others. Fortunately, in good hands these are pretty rare.See 1 more doctor answer
