OPCAB

Off-pump coronary artery bypass Interventional cardiology
A type of minimally invasive cardiac surgery in which cardiopulmonary bypass is eliminated and the heart continues to beat while the surgery is being performed as with MIDCAB, but in which a full median sternotomy is performed to expose the entire heart for multiple bypasses to more than 1 coronary artery. See MIDCAB, Minimally invasive cardiac surgery.
