Overview: Coronary artery bypass graft surgery (CABG) is used to treat coronary artery disease.
Coronary artery disease (CAD) is the narrowing of the coronary arteries that supply blood to the heart muscle. Fatty material builds up in the walls of the arteries and causes them to narrow. This limits the supply of oxygenated blood to the heart. Coronary artery disease is present in about 20% of people with HCM.
