    INDICATIONS FOR CABG

    Advertisements



    Recognize the indications of CABG (coronary artery bypass surgery)

    Explanation:

    The population that nearly always benefits from CABG does not include everyone with CAD.

    The subgroups that benefit are

    3 groups of patients-

    1) those with triple vessel disease AND LV dysfunction,

    2) those with left main disease ,

    3) lastly those with Diabetes mellitus as per the BARI trial.

    Anyone not falling into these categories is not a great candidate for surgery
