Are there any herbal supplements that can be ingested to treat coronary artery disease?

Herbs and CM. There are no clinical studies in reputable journals that support the use of herbal supplements to treat coronary artery disease.
Not Directly. While several supplements are marketed to affect risk factors related to coronary artery disese (e.g., weight loss, cholesterol reduction), none of these has been studied in clinical trials. Therefore, the impact of supplements on coronary artery disease is largely unknown. 1 gram of dha+epa daily has been shown to decrease sudden death due to arrhythmia, an effect not related to developing cad.
Questionable . There are claims but few validated. So buyer beware as these are not regulated by the fda. Fish oil and resveritrol may be the best "natural" options. These are not substitutes for "traditional" medications.

There has been a lot of research done to see what supplements may be helpful, but i can tell you that their effect is modest if that. Garlic is one, flexseed, fiber supplements (benefiber) are some examples. Red rice yeast, although, popular may cause other problems. Read more...

Does iron intake affect coronary artery disease?

Shouldn't. I have never heard of iron supplementation affecting the course of coronary artery disease. Too much iron can effect the myocardium, however, even in that case, it usually is not the oral supplementation but a different process that leads to the damage (cardiomyopathy). Read more...

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.

Is it possible to treat triple vessel coronary artery disease without cabg?

Yes, possible, but.. ... it is very individualized. Many factors are considered, including age, symptoms, stress results, recent heart attack, presence of diabetes, heart muscle function, coronary anatomy. It's highly complex, even if it doesn't seem that way. Your physicians prioritize dozens of data points to conclude that bypass may be necessary. Unless it is an emergency, a 2nd opinion may help allay your anxiety. Read more...
Depends. There are too many variables, such as the severity of disease, presence of "target" vessels for bypass etc. to be able to answer this question in generic terms. This is a very individualized consideration that is best answered by your cardiologist or even primary care physician. Technically, it is possible to treat any heart disease without CABG, but non-surgical treatment may be sub-optimal. Read more...
