In brief: Depends
Depends on coronary anatomy, ejection fraction, valve pathology and comorbidities.
Your cardiac surgeon can tell you. In good candidates good outcome, in poor candidates poor. The society of thoracic surgeons risk calculator can give you an idea but must have all data requested for best estimation.
