1 doctor agrees

In brief: No

At one operation, we fix all we can.
Some people persist with the same high risk behaviors. Future blockage can occur in the native arteries or the grafts. No guarantee, but good results.

In brief: Heart attack

With diffuse coronary artery disease there is no guarantee there won't be a heart attack.
CABG surgery is very effective at improving quality of life, it doesn't guarantee no heart attack. Diet, exercise, not smoking and the pile of pills we use along with surgery if appropriate are the best we can do but no guarantees in the doctor business.
