Do you know what is her LVEF% or EF%. At 80, she may not like to take risk. Let she start taking Wrudved ayurvedic capsule 1-1-1. It will gie her relief. check or send a mail to

As you mentioned the age of your Aunt. is 80 years so looking to her age & as you mentioned here that she also has h/o stroke so any cardiac surgical intervasion wont help her any more because without CABG she could complete her life span CABG is not advisable in this age
