Cardiologist 's  Response
for you it suggests CABG is the preferred , as RCA proximal total occlusion and LCX two lesions and LAD lesion. it needs multiple stents (i.e At least 4) , and RCA lesion my be Chronic total occlusion , so angioplasty success rate may be low.

Hello, thank you for your query. From your description it's apparent that you have got four significant blocks at three major arteries of the heart. Significant means more than 70% obstruction. I personally think CABG is the best option as PCI with stenting won't be sufficient you know that.You have got indications for CABG. GOD helps you.
