Study: Heart Bypass Surgeries May Be Unnecessary

2019-11-18 05:46:131 Oct 2018 01:53 AM EST

Groundbreaking research is challenging decades of common medical knowledge. According to Business Insider, common heart surgeries to remove blockages in arteries — like bypasses — are unnecessary. That's because they can be treated with drug therapy. Patients could save $775 million a year by not having the surgeries done, one doctor told The New York Times. The study "certainly will challenge our clinical thinking," said Dr. Alice Jacobs, director of Cath Lab and Interventional Cardiology at Boston University. Patients receiving drug therapy alone for blocked arteries had no more heart attacks than those that did have surgery.
