This is a treatment for severe narrowing in the arteries of the heart and angina. It is an ‘open heart’ operation. Either an artery from the wall of the chest or sometimes wrist and/or veins from the leg are used to ‘bypass’ the narrowed or blocked heart arteries. It is an extremely effective treatment for angina and can sometimes be lifesaving.
