It Depends: It depends on the severity of the artery disease. Short isolated lesions can be treated with endovascular techniques. Much more severe levels of disease in multiple arteries do better with surgery.

Depends: Depends on what is wrong, angioplasty, stent, or by-pass.

I would add that the starting point before any of the above interventions should be diet, exercise, aspirin, QUIT SMOKING (if you smoke), control cholesterol, blood pressure and diabetes.
