Coronary Artery Bypass Graft
Coronary Artery Bypass Graft is provided at the Queen Elizabeth II Health Sciences Centre in Halifax. During CABG, a healthy artery or vein from the body is connected, or grafted, to the blocked coronary artery. The grafted artery or vein bypasses (that is, goes around) the blocked portion of the coronary artery. This creates a new path for oxygen-rich blood to flow to the heart muscle.
