What Is CABG?

My dad may need a coronary artery bypass graft surgery. We are still considering it. So what exactly is it?
CABG, is short for coronary artery bypass graft, which helps improve blood flow to the heart. It is one treatment for CHD (coronary heart disease).

Put simply, the surgery helps you connect a healthy artery or vein from your body to the blocked one.  Namely, the grafted artery or vein bypasses the blocked coronary artery, creating a new path for bringing oxygen-rich blood to the heart muscle.
