Caption: Harvesting arm artery for heart surgery. Close-up of a surgeon dissecting a radial artery from a forearm during a coronary artery bypass graft (CABG) operation. During CABG, a healthy artery is attached to the diseased coronary artery. This re-routes the blood flow, bypassing the blocked coronary artery. Blood vessels can become blocked by the build-up of fatty plaques, known as atherosclerosis. This reduces blood flow to the areas served by the vessel. Inadequate blood flow to the heart can lead to heart pain (angina) or a heart attack (myocardial infarction).
