Cardiac and
Vascular Surgical Procedures
​Coronary artery bypass graft (CABG)

This surgery can improve blood flow to the heart (or other organs and tissues) by providing a new route, or “bypass,” around a section of clogged or diseased artery.

Valve repair

An operation performed to repair a heart valve that is either blocking normal blood flow or causing blood to leak backward into the heart (regurgitation).

Valve replacement

An operation performed to replace a heart valve that is either blocking normal blood flow or causing blood to leak backward into the heart (regurgitation).

Carotid endarterectomy

A surgery that is able to remove or bypass the fatty deposits, or blockage, in the carotid artery narrowed by the buildup of fatty tissue (atherosclerosis).

Peripheral endarterectomy

An operation that can remove or bypass the fatty deposits, or blockage, in an artery narrowed by the buildup of fatty tissue (atherosclerosis).

Aneurysm repair

This involves the repair of the sac-like protrusion of a blood vessel that is cause by a weakening of the vessel wall. This can be performed with stents or grafts.

Peripheral artery bypass and graft

This surgery can improve blood flow to the arm or leg (or other organs and tissues) by providing a new route, or "bypass," around a section of clogged or diseased artery.

Stent graft of abdominal aortic aneurysm (AAA) or endovascular grafting

This is a less-invasive alternative to surgical repair and involves the placement of a synthetic fabric tube (graft) supported by a metal scaffold (stent) inside the aneurysm. Open surgical repair—Through an abdominal incision, a surgeon replaces the section of the aorta where the aneurysm has formed with a synthetic fabric tube, or graft.
