Hi friend,
Welcome to Health Care Magic

There is no alternative / Yes, it is Hobson's choice.
Three vessels are blocked - there could be an attack, any moment.
Ventricular function is poor - delaying further is worse.

The risk is high, but it is the only possible remedy.
Benefits will be appreciable

Take care
Wishing speedy recovery
God bless
Good luck
