ABSTRACT
The article presents updates on coronary bypass surgery and rehabilitation. More than 200,000 open cardiac surgeries are performed every year in the U.S. Structured programs of rehabilitation have been shown to be effective in restoring functional capacity, increasing return to work and improving the psychological status of patients following coronary artery bypass grafting
