Hello Mr.Azad;
welcome to HealthcareMagic
The treatment in case of blocked coronary artery depends upon the number of vessels blocked and the percentage of block.So if a single vessel is blocked angioplasty can be done which is a less invasive procedure and if there is block in all three vessels and the percentage is more than 70% in all then bypass surgery is advisable.These are the presently two available treatment which surely treat blocked arteries and no other treatment.There are few people claiming cure but nothing is scientifically proven.
