Good: But depends on other risk factors: diabetes, smoking, lipids, weight., and residual cardiac function. She should work on risk reduction as soon as she can.

How soon into the heart attack the angioplasty was done is important to limit heart muscle damage. The function of the heart and the amount of damage and scar will also be important in long term survival.
