Failed stress test. EF 33%. Poss. blockage both RCA and LAD. Will be doing angiogram. What are chances this can be resolved with stent vs. surgery?

In brief: Angiography

When the clinical indication for an interventional procedure in addition to medical therapy is present, one needs to first see the coronary anatomy to determine what is the best procedure for the patient.
When multivessel disease is present in such a patient, often surgical intervention is preferable to stenting but not always. After the angiogram discuss the choices with your Dr.
