hello,
Welcome to Health Care Magic,
When Arteries are blocked the surgeons operate and take an excisting artery from the other part of body and use it to bypass the clot.All surgery big or small contains certain complications.the associated complications are stroke,heart attack,blood clot.Fortunately the complications are very very rare and majority of the surgeries are successful.If you are advised the surgery it is your best possible option.dont worry though complications exists they are extremely rare.85-90% surgeries are successful.All will be fine.
