Hi.. Angioplasty are done to reduce the correction of an already exising blocks.. However medications are for prevention of a new one.. Hence it is essential that he uses the medications regularly. And also involves lifestyle modifications including quitting smoking, weight reduction and dietary changes... Else there are chances that he may develop a heartattack due to a new block..
