Did You Know?

Coronary artery bypass grafting (CABG) is an open-heart surgical procedure to treat severe heart disease. It improves blood flow to the heart by connecting, or grafting, a healthy artery or vein to one that’s blocked. The national average for any major complications/operative mortality for CABG procedures (with bypass machine) is 12.5%; at El Camino the rate is 0%.
