The CABG operation has a high success rate, but rarely it may prove fatal. The risk is greater if the patient's heart muscle has already been severely damaged or if the patient has another serious disease - specifically chest or kidney disease. Your cardiac surgeon will discuss these risks fully with you before you decide to go ahead with the operation.
About 70-80% of patients experience no further angina symptoms after their operation and usually you can expect to return to a normal life. Many hospitals now have Pre-operative Clinics where you can meet other patients and discuss your concerns with nursing staff before you come into hospital for your operation. You may also have the opportunity to donate some of your own blood for use in the blood transfusions you will need when you have surgery. Use of your own blood will reduce your risk of cross-infection.

I had undergone PDA surgery when I was 3 yrs old. I got married 6 months back and got pregnant in last June. During the routine check up for the pregnancy, it was found that, I have SEVERE AS and MILD AR. And doctor advised me to terminate the pregnancy and prescribed immediate Aortic valve replacement surgery. After this, we consulted another doctor and he also came to the same conclusion. We did MTP on June 11th, and after this I got normal periods on July 9th. My next appointment with the cardiologist is on 19th August. Based on the ECHO and ECG, they said, we can fix the date of operation. Doctor has opted, BIO-PROSTHETIC AORTIC VALVE REPLACEMENT. In the last two months, our life was much changed by hearing all this. Abortion and operation, tension, grief everything. I would like to know Doctor, I donâ??t have faced any problem in walking or climbing steps, cycling or anything. I was leading a normal life. After this operation, would we be having any problem with conceiving again? Please take this as my request and please let me know will this operation cause any problem in having children and leading a normal life.
My mom had open heart surgery approx. 1 month ago to remove an atrial myxoma that had damaged the mitral valve. They replaced the valve and damaged an artery during the removal of the myxoma, so they also did a by-pass. She was slow to wake up from anesthesia, but started making great recovery. She was able to shower, cook, drive, etc. Then last week, literally overnight, she developed severe tremors when she would engage in any kind of movement. She shakes, has terrible balance, no energy and speech is slowed. I ve had her to the ER twice, and they say all her labs are normal. Even did a cat scan and it was normal. They are referring her to a neurologist. Any ideas what could cause this? She had been doing so well, now she can t even stay home alone.

My 57 year old cousin was admitted to the hospital last week with congestive heart failure and was told only 20 percent of his heart was functioning. Turns out he has all kinds of blockages all over his body. They had to put in four stents including one in the coronary artery before they could do bypass surgery today. He needs three bypasses but they were only able to do two. Before surgery, he was told that they wanted to do more stents this week as soon as he recovered from the bypass surgery. What kind of prognosis do you think my cousin has?
