CABG is the most commonly performed open-heart operation. It is a surgical procedure in which one or more blocked coronary arteries are bypassed by a blood vessel graft to restore normal blood flow to the heart. CABG reduces chest pain and risk of death from heart attack.
Isolated CABG means that only a CABG surgery is performed on the patient without any other procedure. In 2017, NHCS had performed 715 isolated CABG surgeries. The mortality rate in 2017 was 1.68%.
