kindly ask the cardiologist regarding charges at Appollo hospital.Angioplasty will make him better .if he takes proper medicine re-blockage chances will be less but it can occur in some other artery.Regarding the risk involved your CARDIOLOGIST will give you better answer as he knows your fathers general condition better.
