It’s not so long ago that heart bypass surgery was thought of as a terrifying, risky operation that you only had if there was no other option.
Today, things are very different. Bypass surgery is not only safe, but fairly common. More than a million are performed in the U.S each year. This includes both coronary artery bypass graft (CABG) or angioplasty with or without stenting.
All sounds fairly straightforward, right?
But startling new evidence has revealed that 42 percent of bypass patients show a significant decline in mental ability in the five years after their surgery.
And it’s not just due to old age! It appears that certain procedures involved in this delicate surgery can hinder oxygen flow to the brain – ultimately destroying brain cells.
Obviously, if you have a heart attack, bypass surgery is unavoidable. And it’s certainly better than death.
So, what CAN you do?
Well, we’ve done the research on this frightening phenomenon and you’re about to discover a lot more than your surgeon will reveal.
