Is it possible to go for a repeat CABG?
Q: Is it possible to go for a repeat CABG? If so, what are the risk factors?
A:It definitely is possible to undergo repeat CABG and even up to 3rd and 4th time bypass surgeries are being performed. However, each time the bypass surgery is repeated, the complexity of the operation increase. Essentially the risk factors are related to the function of the heart and other co morbid conditions that an individual may have, such as concomitant lung, kidney or brain disease, presence of diabetes or presence of degenerated but functioning bypass grafts, which are full of clots. This is rather a technical question and I only hope, I have been able to communicate to you.
