CABG: Recovering from Bypass Surgery

CABG (pronounced "cabbage") may be a familiar term if you or any of your close ones have suffered from a heart attack. Chances of this are quite high, specially if you belong to Indian population.

Studies of Indian immigrants and cross sectional studies in India, have demonstrated that coronary artery disease (CAD) is rampant in Indians and that its prevalence is several folds higher than in industrialized nations. The Global Burden of Diseases (GBD) study reported the estimated mortality from CAD in India at 1.6 million in the year 2000. Extrapolation of this estimate shows the current burden of CAD in India to be more than 32 million patients.

Let’s take a closer look on what is CABG & how to deal with it.

Cardiac Rehab Program : Story of Recovery & Confidence

Indians have traditionally faced high mortality due to a wide array of Cardiovascular Diseases (CVDs), including those like Hypertension, blocked arteries, cholestrol leading to Ischaemic Heart Disease (IHD), Hypertensive Heart Disease (HHD), Rheumatic Heart Disease (RHD), Cardiomyopathies, Congenital Heart Disease (CHD), Peripheral Artery Disease. However it is estimated that 90% of CVDs are preventable.

Also most of the CVD patients can help lower their risk of future heart problems if they make changes to improve their health.

Cardiac Rehabilitation has emerged as a very reliable and sustainable protocol to improve cardiac health and improve outcomes of cardiac surgery.
