welcome ...
as u have already underwent stenting and bypass grafting, unfortunately which was failed within one month.
even after the failed Bypass grafts, sometime we can open the failed graft artery by stenting (PTCA).
that can be done by an expert INTERVENTIONAL cardiologist.
to get releif from ANGINA definitely its better to open the closed artery and also proper anti anginal medications, like Metoprolol, Carvedilol, aspirin, clopedogrel atorvastatin, nitrates etc to be given atleast OPTIMUM doze. in that manner definitely u will get releif from ANGINA.
please consult a expert INTERVENTIONAL cardiologist along with ur angiogram CD.
wish u a angina free healthy life ...
