Omega-3 supplements may keep you alive after heart surgery

People having heart surgery-from angioplasty, stenting or a bypass-should supplement with omega-3 fatty acids afterwards

People having heart surgery-from angioplasty, stenting or a bypass-should supplement with omega-3 fatty acids afterwards. It might just save their lives, researchers say.
The procedures often cause inflammation and scarring, which can lead to permanent disability and even death.
But compounds in omega-3 supplements reduce inflammation and improve the healing of blood vessels after surgery, say researchers at the University of California, San Francisco.
