Coronary Artery Bypass Graft Surgery – patient information to assist informed consent

This RACS patient education pamphlet provides surgical information on coronary artery bypass graft (CABG) surgery. The topics discussed include:

  • Anatomy and physiology of the heart
  • The coronary arteries and coronary artery disease
  • Coronary artery bypass grafts
  • Types of bypass grafts (including internal mammary artery graft, radial artery graft and saphenous vein graft)

 CABG surgery is described for patients needing treatment of coronary artery disease, and who may be experiencing angina or are at risk of a heart attack. Anatomical illustrations depict the various types of bypass grafts that may be used.

 This leaflet can be a useful tool for patients considering undergoing surgical treatment as the benefits, risks and limitations of CABG surgery are discussed in detail. The possible complications of surgery are listed on page 4 to assist the informed-consent process.

Mi-tec publishes 31 Royal Australasian College of Surgeons patient information brochures. CABG surgery is described in plain English to assist the patients’ understanding of health information and to help patients make informed decisions. The RACS patient information brochures are printed in five-colour on high-quality A4 sheets.
