Got angiography done recently and have been informed that all three of my arteries are blocked

I got my angiography done recently and have been informed that all three of my arteries are blocked 70% 80% and 90%. I have been told by the R & R Hospital that this situation can be corrected by angioplasty bur the hospital goes strictly by the guidelines of American Heart Association, which says that in such cases bypass should be done. I want to know how I should proceed further

Hi Sethi
Welcome to HealthcareMagic.

The best choice in your situation is Coronary artery bypass graft.Though both the procedures have their own risks , in a triple vessel disease , as you may have , it is best to opt for By pass graft surgery.

Take care.
