Answered by Dr. Guru 10 minutes later
Brief Answer: Refer below. Detailed Answer: Hi, Thanks for follow up! This means that coronary artery(which supplies blood to heart) has got extensive blockage (diseased). LAD means left anterior descending artery, a branch of coronary artery). This is blocked to 80% in your case, which means only 20% of that vessel is open. This is one of the main blood vessel that supplies to heart. Hope I have answered your query. If you are satisfied, you may now close the discussion and rate the answer.
