Hi, Welcome to the ehealthforum and I am really glad to help you out. Repeat cardiac bypass surgery can be done but usually itâs much more difficult than the first one as thereâs development of the scar tissue from the previous surgery and handling the same becomes extremely difficult.
I am not aware of any record number of bypass surgeries on a person but usually an angioplasty is tried first if a graft also develops blockages and in case the angioplasty fails, then only a redo bypass is considered. I sincerely hope that helps. Take care.
