General & Family Physician 's  Response
The treatment for critically blocked coronary arteries are a coronary arterial bypass or a intra arterial stent(spring).There are many factors which determine what can be done , if anything .These risk factors include your general health, the immediate risk of death,the general state of your arteries,whether or not you have healthy veins to use for the graft etc.I do not know the reasons you where sent home first, but I can assure you that no doctor would take that discussion lightly.Contact your doctor to explain your risk and the reasons for his discussion .
