Bypass Surgery is an open heart surgical procedure that redirects blood flow around narrowed arteries, thereby supplying blood and oxygen to the heart.
Bypass Surgery, also referred to as Off-Pump Coronary Artery Bypass (OPCAB), is a bypass surgical procedure that redirects blood flow around a blockage or narrowed section in the major arteries supplying blood and oxygen to the heart.
Bypass Surgery is performed while your heart is still beating, and does not require a heart-lung machine. Using a stabilisation device, the area of the heart to be operated upon is immobilised for the duration of the surgery. The other, more traditional method of Cardiopulmonary Bypass (CPB) uses a heart-lung machine and involves temporarily stopping the heart and replacing it with the machine.
