Thanks for writing to us.Triple vessel disease
is an indication for open heart surgery i.e. coronary artery
bypass graft surgery also called as CABG.
There is an alternative for CABG is PTCA
(Percutaneous transluminal coronary angioplasty
Percutaneous transluminal coronary angioplasty (PTCA) is a minimally invasive procedure to open up blocked coronary arteries, allowing blood to circulate unobstructed to the heart muscle.
Decision regarding need for PTCA,CABG or conservative management depends up on :--
1.anatomy of coronary arteries whether suitable for PTCA or not,
2.percentage of block in each vessel
3.Viability of myocardium
4.Diabetic or non diabetic
5.Age and other risk factors for surgery
6.Presence of any valvular heart disease
Hence get Cardiologist opinion with review of previous angiography
video recording.He can correlate all these facts and can give better advise accordingly.
Hope this will help you better.
Wish your dad happy health.
