Advised angioplasty as main vein has 70% block. Any remedy other than surgery ?

dear sir, Two days back my father had a anchio test. Doctor told to do the anchio- plaster because he is having blocks in three areas in that one of the main vein is having 70% block. Is it really required to the surgery or any medicine can continue without doing surgery. My father age is 55 years. Kindly guide me sir. Thank you, AAAAA

hi,
your father angio shows triple vessel disease with one is more than 70% blocked.
We usually advice angioplasty if vessel is more than 70% blocked.
So if your father is symptomatic better under go angioplasty for that vessel.
