Welcome to HMC ,

from your angiogram report it is advisable to undergo stenting as advised,

no need to afraid from stenting ,

procedure for PTCA and stenting is same like your angiogram procedure for you , its different for doctor who is going to perform PTCA as he has to do stent placement but for you as you underwent angiogram , procedure will be same ,

no other way till now available in place of stenting in your case as you have block in RCA and in single vessel problem,

adopt healthy life style ,

eat healthy food ,

do stress reducing yogas ,

take care
