Hybrid Coronary Revascularization

Emory is one of the few centers in the country offering a unique procedure called hybrid coronary revascularization. The investigational procedure is a combination of coronary artery bypass surgery (CABG) and percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI).

Hybrid coronary revascularization typically is performed on a person who has a blockage in the artery in the front of the heart and at least one other blood vessel with disease in it. This unique approach is a best of both world’s strategy - we combine durability of surgery with minimally invasive nature of stenting. It is optimal therapy with minimally invasive approach. This translates into shorter recovery time, potentially fewer complications and a quicker return to work.
