therefor causing angina, or chest pains. When left untreated, this may

supply of blood.

then is sedated. Once the patient is unconscious, doctors will take a
blood vessel from either the wrist, the leg or the chest which will
become the detour of blood towards the heart.
Before finishing the procedure, doctors will still check for other
blocked vessels and will be doing the same procedure if needed. After
the process, the wound is closed through wires and sutures, and the
patient will be taken to the ICU for recovery.
People who are suffering from other conditions besides CHD, like
hypertension or diabetes, are monitored for a longer time since people
who have diabetes are at higher risks of developing infections and

in its benefits and side effects. Ask about the recuperating time and
ways to prevent infections.

well, to be able to save yourself from all the hassles of getting
treatments for different conditions.
