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.

Angioplasty: The treatment of multivessel disease depends on many factors. If you have triple vessel disease you should discuss your status with your cardiologist and ask the options open to you.
