How do we perform?
The surgery is done under general anesthesia. The surgeon makes an incision in the
middle of the chest where the breastbone lies. The breastbone is cut with a
mechanical instrument to get to the heart. The artery needs to be replace with another artery so the doctor makes a little incision to cut
an artery from another body part. The most common parts are the wrist, the
ankle or the chest. After they have the replace artery they proceed to replace
the healthy artery where the unhealthy artery was.
