The provider accesses the coronary artery during a coronary artery bypass graft procedure, incises the artery needing treatment, and removes plaque as necessary. Plaque reduces blood flow in the coronary arteries and may break off and lodge in a narrow portion. This causes complete obstruction of the artery, resulting in an infarction and damage to the ventricle.
