In brief: Cabg

stands for coronary artery bypass graft.
This is when a blood vessel from the body (artery or vein) is used to reroute blood around a blockage in an artery that feeds the heart.

In brief: Heart artery bypass

The heart arteries are "coronary" arteries.
A "bypass graft" ( bg ) is the tube used to deliver blood downstream of diseased ( occluded ) arteries. A heart artery bypass = coronary artery bypass graft.
