BTW, they are developing some great ways to reduce the side effects. They have a suction device that grabs on to the top of the heart and allows them to do the bypass surgery without stopping the beating. Apparently the external blood oxygenators that were required for previous open heart surgery almost always caused blood clots and ministrokes that affected people's brains.
