SURGERY OF THE HEART
Services for your cardiovascular health in Marbella
- The coronary arteries bring oxigenated blood to the miocardium (heart muscle)
- When they block the heart muscle suffers and hurts (angina) or diez (miocardial infartion or heart attack)
- Very often they can open up with a stent, with a catheter through the radial artery (wrist) or femoral artery (groin).
- Often times the blockage is to extensive or many arteries are involved and a coronary bypas is reccomended. In this case an artery (normally mamamari artery in your chest) or a vein from the leg is used as a new Conduit to “bridge” the blockage and restore circulation to the heart muscle. This is a coronary artery bypas graft or CABG.
