Can Triple vessel coronary artery disease treated with angioplasty and placement of stents?

Yes but,: Depends on where the blocks are, how many, how complex and how long. Each case must be individualized. The more stents used the more likely the need for repeated procedures. Also with stents may need to take antiplatelet drugs for prolonged periods. Sometimes bypass better long term even though surgery is much harder on the patient. Need 2 discuss with cardiologist and heart surgeon b4 proceeding.
