Dear Saibaba,I think you are talking the vessels of heart.From the report it seems that he is having inschemic heart disease in which the blood supply to heart is not good and that is causing chest pain.In such cases the blocked vessels needed to be opened.Depending upon the site of lesion either angioplasty or by pass surgery is recommended.your doctor is the best person to guide you.Bye and take care.

General & Family Physician Dr. Shainaz Arif Kaware's  Response
Hello;
welcome to HealthcareMagic
Sorry i have to correct you and say that the arteries supplying blood are blocked and not the valves.One blood vessel is 100% and the other are 75-80 and one is better than the two so definitely if the blood supply to heart is reduced your father will have chest pain so he will require treatment.The treatment is medical;Angioplasty ;and CABG that is bypass surgery.The line of treatment will be selected by your fathers Cardiologist depending upon the symptoms he is suffering and his general condition.So please discuss the line of treatment with him as the Cardiologist will be the better person to advise you as he has seen the patient and knows general condition well.
Thanks

Sir, My Father (age 67) had some chest pains and problems and so he consulted a physician. All the tests were done and he was reffered to a specialist Cardiologist. The Cardiologist checked and asked him to take up the TMT Test. During the TMT test,he was only able to take that for 4 minutes 9 seconds because he experienced very dried up mouth,throat and fatigue. Finally,the Cardiologist examined the reports and confirmed that his ARTERIES are blocked and asked him that it would be good to do a ANGIOGRAPHY. VERY VERY IMPORTANT- The Cardiologist prescribed to take a medication called ECHOSPRIN-75 once daily.But after the first day,there was severe reactions like suffocation,breathing problem,very weakness and loss of balance of his body.So,we immediately stopped the medication. So,i need your help and it would be very good if you could please give your Interpretations,observations and explain me the present condition of his heart.I humbly request you all for your support as soon as possible because i dont know much about these things and is it needed to go for a Angiography. ****I have attached a DOCUMENT with HIS TMT test results,echo-cardiography.Please let me know if you need any other reports and i will attach them.
