CABG in India - Why Medical Tourists Prefer India

Coronary artery bypass grafting or heart bypass

Heart diseases are still a major concern for healthcare providers all across the world. Heart and cardiovascular diseases are still the number one cause of death anywhere in the world.  As per the latest data provided by World Health Organization at least 30% of global deaths are caused by heart diseases. The increasing rate of cardiovascular diseases can be attributed to the sedentary lifestyle, stress, and consequent factors like obesity, hypertension, diabetes, etc. all of which are big contributors to cardiovascular ailments. 

Why is Coronary artery bypass grafting or heart bypass done? 

CABG or Coronary Artery Bypass Grafting or commonly referred to as heart bypass surgery is the operation done to treat the blockage in arteries carrying blood to heart. 

The most common type of heart ailment and the most common cause of heart attack is the coronary arterial blockage which causes obstruction to easy and smooth flow of blood to the heart. Thickening of the arteries, because of deposit of plaques inside the artery wall, stiffening and loss of elasticity of arteries, calcification, etc. (these symptoms are medically referred as angina) are some of the common clinical symptoms of the problem. Coronary heart problems lead to clotting of blood inside the arteries and thus a critical condition is reached when the heart receives less than the required amount of oxygen rich blood causing discomfort, chest pain, breathing trouble, etc.(symptoms of angina). With the progress of the problem the clot and the deposit of the plaques in the arteries can continue to grow and it can stiffen causing more obstruction in the arterial blood flow and in such condition the suffering patient is most vulnerable to heart attack. 

CABG or Coronary Artery Bypass Graft or commonly called heart bypass surgery is the surgical method to graft new arteries to ensure uninterrupted blood supply to the heart.

How CABG is done? 

CABG or coronary bypass surgery is done by grafting a blood vessel from other part of the body in the heart to bypass the blood flow from the blocked arteries. Through grafting the new arteries uninterrupted supply of oxygen rich blood to the heart is assured to prevent consequent heart ailment and chances of heart attack. Commonly used terms like ‘single bypass’, ‘double bypass’, ‘triple bypass’ are mentioned in reference to how many arteries in the heart are grafted. CABG is the most preferred surgery for coronary heart disorder (CHD) as in majority of cases it provides complete relief from the symptoms for as long as 10 to 15 years. It reduces the risk of heart attack and heart ailment dramatically. 

Why India is the most preferred destination for CABG? 

Over the years Indian healthcare sector has come of age and now has the most advanced medical technology available at leading heart hospitals in India. Indian hospitals have made themselves a prominent choice for international patients when it comes to life saving surgeries like CABG.

Most important all, while the medical care is at par or better than any other top notch healthcare facilities in the world, the cost of heart surgery in India is a fourth as compared to the developed western countries. As of now, the success rate of CABG in India is more than 98% which is higher than most parts of the world and only at par with few medically advanced countries.
