Thanks for your question

Your angiographic findings along with your symptoms suggests that you need to undergo intervention whether by stenting or CABG depending upon the severity of graft disease.

Studies suggest that CABG is superior treatment in severe disease

You need to discuss the pros and cons of each intervention modality with your doctor
