If the doctors can get it unclogged, then there's no problem. Your Dad is in the best place he can be right now. If the vessel remained clogged, blood would be cut off to part of that heart and it would stop working, meaning the rest of the heart needs to work harder to pump blood.
The condition your Dad has is called Angina--a temporary clogging of the blood vessel(s) to the heart. It is NOT a heart attack and can be managed with medication, diet and exercise.

Hi, my father-in-law is having ATG treatments and had a bad reaction. His heart was racing and yet his blood pressure was dangerously low. They suspended the ATG treatments until he was stabilized. The heart specialist told him today that he has a Hypokinetic Heart. What does that mean?
Good day Doc,I just wanna ask about my palpitation, it s not normal, around 95 beats per minute always and pounding a bit hard. What causes it? blood is normal, i guess not in hyperthyrodism.. is it maybe because my nose is clogged due to polyps as they call it, therefore, just a little amount of oxygen enters the heart that causes palpitation, is it?
