  1. A Coronary Artery Bypass Graft (CABG) is a surgical procedure used to treat Coronary Heart Disease.
    • Like all organs in the body, the heart needs a constant supply of blood.
    • This is supplied by 2 large blood vessels called the left and right Coronary Arteries.
    • Your chances of developing Coronary Heart Disease increase with age.
  2. Mitral valve repair is a Cardiac Surgery procedure performed by cardiac surgeons to treat stenosis (narrowing) or regurgitation (leakage) of the mitral valve.
    • The mitral valve is the "inflow valve" for the left side of the heart. Blood flows from the lungs, where it picks up oxygen, through the pulmonary veins, to the left atrium of the heart.
    • After the left atrium fills with blood, the mitral valve allows blood to flow from the left atrium into the heart's main pumping chamber called the left ventricle.
    • It then closes to keep blood from leaking back into the left atrium or lungs when the ventricle contracts (squeezes) to push blood out to the body. It has two flaps, or leaflets, known as cusps.

Carotid Doppler

A Carotid Doppler is an imaging test that uses ultrasound to examine the Carotid Arteries located in the neck. This test can show narrowing or possible blockages due to plaque buildup in the arteries due to coronary artery disease.

  • A sonographer will explain the test to you and answer any questions you may have.
  • You will be asked to lie flat on an examination table, with your head on a pillow, slightly turned away from the side being examined.
  • The sonographer will apply some gel to a small ultrasound probe and position it on one side of your neck. In order to obtain good quality images, it is necessary to apply some pressure with the probe.
  • You will hear sounds due to the Doppler.
  • Images of the arteries will be recorded and various measurements will be taken.
  • The data will be reviewed by a cardiologist and a report will be sent to the doctor(s) involved in your care.

Coronary Angioplasty

A Coronary Angioplasty is a procedure used to widen blocked or narrowed coronary arteries (the main blood vessels supplying the heart).

  • Like all organs in the body, the heart needs a constant supply of blood. This is supplied by the coronary arteries.
  • In older people, these arteries can become narrowed and hardened (known as atherosclerosis), which can cause coronary heart disease.
  • If the flow of blood to the heart becomes restricted, it can lead to chest pain known as angina, which is usually triggered by physical activity or stress.
  • While angina can often be treated with medication, a coronary angioplasty may be required to restore the blood supply to the heart in severe cases where medication is ineffective.
  • Coronary angioplasties are also often used as an emergency treatment after a heart attack.


An echocardiogram (echo) is a test that uses high frequency sound waves (ultrasound) to make pictures of your heart. The test is also called echocardiography or diagnostic cardiac ultrasound.

  • An echo uses sound waves to create pictures of your heart’s chambers, valves, walls and the blood vessels (aorta, arteries, veins) attached to your heart.
  • A probe called a transducer is passed over your chest. The probe produces sound waves that bounce off your heart and “echo” back to the probe. These waves are changed into pictures viewed on a video monitor.
  • An echo can’t harm you.
  • An echo doesn’t hurt and has no side effects.
