Grafting arteries to restore blood flow is best for survival

Surgeons prefer complete revascularization technique to increase blood flow to the heart// than coronary bypass surgery. The procedure is said to increase 5 years of patients’ life than the coronary bypass surgery.

Surgeons from Cedars-Sinai Medical Center, US, have found that patients who had blockages in multiple of coronary arteries have more life span when they undergo arterial grafts that will restore blood flow to all areas of the heart. Incomplete artery grafting may not increase the lifespan of the patients sufficiently outside the hospital stay.

Researchers feel that the current tendency of considering only the hospital stay as the parameter to rate as success in a coronary bypass surgery is not enough. Surgeons need to consider the lifespan of the patient after they have been discharged from the hospital. Coronary bypass surgery increases the risk of dying from any cause by 70% and the rsik of dying from cardiovascular problems by about 85%. The new procedure of total grafting of arteries will reduce the risk and is expected to increase the rate of survival of the patient as well.
