When should we go in for a total arterial bypass surgery?

In this video, Dr. O P. Yadava, Chief Cardiac Surgeon, National Heart Institute will tell us the criteria of total arterial bypass surgery and when it is done. The results of total arterial bypass surgery are mostly superior to the venous revascularization. Almost 10 – 15 % of the venous grafts are blocked by the end of one year. Whereas, the patency rates of arterial grafts is high even at 10 – 20 years. Total arterial bypass surgery revascularization is done when a patient is young but it also depends upon various factors.
