I hope you must have undergone coronary angigraphy which showed 90% bloched ,we do not advice this kind of therapy this is not scientifically good therapy.There is surgery known as CABG which is the choice of treatment bypass surgery is safe and very effective mode of treatment in good hands.if by any reson you do not want or not possible by any other reason then take optimal possible medical therpy. even after therapy you get angina then you may try Enhanced External counterpulsation therapy (EECP) may useful for you.

Dear friend, welcome to HCM.
chelation therapy is not well substantiated in medical science and hence not recommended.
no good doctor will advise chelation since it has not been scientifically proven to matter.(no guideline recommends it)
pl. consult your cardiologist for better advice.
take care and keep me informed on your progress.
Good luck !

Hello there..
welcome to healthcare magic forum..
When one artery is blocked more than 90% best modality of treatment would be angioplasty. If more than 2 arteries are blocked the best therapy would be By pass surgery.. You need to consult a cardiologist and discuss with him about the best options available for you..
Hope this helps.
take care..
