In brief: Good for pain

Bipass is very successful in relieving angina pectoris, pain related to blockage in the arteries.
In most circumstances, there is not good evidence that it also lengthens life. Whether you have surgery or not, it is critical to address your risk factors such as smoking, blood pressure, cholesterol, stress, diabetes, obesity, lack of exercise, etc.
