Genesis heart surgeons Nicholas Augelli, M.D., and Robert Fietsam, M.D., will host this interactive discussion. During the live webcast, you'll learn how surgeons use an automated device that deploys tiny, stainless steel staples to secure the bypass vessel to the coronary artery. They perform the coronary artery bypass surgery "off-pump," meaning while the heart is still beating and without using the heart-lung machine.

A heart-lung machine temporarily takes over the work of the heart and lungs, allowing surgeons to work on a motionless muscle while they hand-sew spaghetti-thin vessels to bypass the blockage.

For patients, the result is a quicker surgery; about a day less in the hospital; a faster recovery; and, if early studies hold true, a better chance that bypassed vessels will remain free of blockages over time.
