In brief: If u mean CABG

CABG is used in pts with severe multivessel disease, highly complex blockages that are not amenable to angioplasty, pts with weak hearts and multivessel disease especially diabetics, pts with blockages that need a valve replaced or repaired.
These are just few reasons. All pts need to be treated as a unique case with all the risks vs benefits evaluated prior to any procedure bing done.
