What are the pros and cons of coronary bypass surgery?

Bucks and injury

Bypass_surgery
Over the last several years angioplasty has exceeded coronary bypass surgery as the preferred way to treat coronary artery disease. Optimistic coronary bypass patients are half as likely as pessimists to require re-hospitalization. The big bucks are in triple coronary bypass surgery, not routine visits to the doctor's office.

tell me about minimally invasive coronary bypass surgery?

2 definitions

Bypass_surgery
One definition is the avoidance of cardiopulmonary bypass or "off-pump." More classic definition is any surgery that avoids a stenotomy (dividing the breastbone). This can be done with a mini-thoracotomy or completely endoscopic with robotics.
