Hi Dr Divsheen,
Thanks for writing in.
I am a qualified and certified cardiologist.
I read your mail with diligence.
Chances of TIAs and stroke
though not eliminated altogether incidence is far less after proper angioplasty
of a stent. In any case Clopidogrel+ Aspirin
, will have to be continued for quite some time in both form of therapies. If I were you I would choose the invasive mode of treatment for it is painless and in expert hands complications are far less than what can potentially occur if the lesion is left alone. Good Luck.
With Best Wishes.
Dr Anil Grover
