One of the narrowing caused by accumulation of fat in the walls of blood vessels that arise from a bad lifestyle. However, not all coronary heart disease requires CABG heart surgery. Treatment of coronary heart disease can use other methods depending on the severity.

Blockages can also be caused by a clot that will block the blood supply to the heart, causing a heart attack. Previously, your cardiologist will confirm the area that is narrowed or blocked by heart catheterization. CABG is an action taken with recommendations from a Cardiologist. By doing CABG, patients will be able to do activities more broadly, unlike before CABG which has many abstain activities due to heart disease.
