Caption: Quadruple bypass heart surgery. Masked surgeon during a quadruple coronary bypass operation on the heart. In the foreground is the metal retractor which holds open the sternum of the chest during the procedure. Coronary bypass surgery restores the blood supply to the heart muscle in patients with coronary heart disease. Parts of the coronary arteries, blocked by fatty plaques, are bypassed by grafts of veins usually taken from the leg. The improved blood flow to the heart muscle relieves angina and reduces the risk of heart attack.
