Coronary artery bypass grafting (CABG) is often recommended as a treatment for heart disease caused by constrictions of the arteries supplying heart. Depending on the degree of arterial constrictions, the doctor may recommend coronary artery bypass intervention. This intervention corrects the blood flow that supplies the heart, thus restoring health. Coronary bypass surgery may provide a second chance for your heart and for life.
Coronary artery bypass surgery re-supplies blood to the heart through the formation of a different path, other than the constricted or narrowed artery. In the event of more than one constricted artery, more than one bypass is required.
The artery to be used for the bypass, also known as a graft, is taken from the chest, arm or leg and attached to the constricted coronary artery. The most commonly used grafts are internal thoracic arteries, aorta from the arms, and vena from the legs. Since the areas of origin of these veins have additional veins, their removal does not affect the blood circulation of the body.

How much is a CABG?
The expense of CABG is dependent on the number of heart vessels being bypassed or grafted, as to repair damage on the coronary arteries. According to the American Heart Association, the average hospitalization cost of a heart bypass in the US is $117,094 excluding doctor’s fees. For individuals not covered by insurance, the costs could be higher at around $200,000 or more depending on the extent of damage, the number of grafts made, and if the patient suffered complications. Add another $5,000 to that to include a surgeon’s professional fee to come-up with the total fee.
