Question:

Can too high blood pressure damage coronary bypass grafts?

Can high blood pressure, say like 180/100 just weeks after heart bypass surgery and constant despite medication damage the bypass grafts? Or a valve repair?

No, not at that level, however, maximal medical treatment should be achieved to prevent other things such as stroke or kidney failure.
