In brief: Depends on location

A 100% blockage means that a vessel is totally occluded.
It means that (usually) there is atherosclerosis. The effect to the person who has a 100% blockage is highly variable. The insult to the heart may be a full blown heart attack to absolutely no symptoms and no damage depending on the size, location, and presence or absence of collateral blood vessels.
