Heart Disease Home > Organ Injury After Off-Pump Bypass Surgery

During any chest surgery, it's possible that some parts of your body can be damaged, such as the heart, lungs, esophagus, or even the nervous system. Organ injury after off-pump bypass surgery is rare, but if it does happen, your treatment will depend on what part or organ is damaged. In most cases, these injuries are found right away, can be repaired, and will heal without any problems. If they don't heal, another surgery may be needed.
Sometimes, an injury to an organ doesn't appear at the time of the operation, but shows up later. This may also require additional surgery.
