In brief: Minimize the Drivers

Optimize lipoprotein concentrations (ldl ; hdl, not cholesterol), low normal blood glucose: hba1c <5.
0, low normal bp, don't smoke, stay physically active, confront and resolve stress, etc. This is the best approach. Conventional medical methods , angioplasty, stents, bypass surgery, etc. Only partially treat the symptoms ; further complicate the disease process (i have experience will all these).

What might be optimal LDL & Large-HDL concentrations? For all clients I see, the goal I have people aim for & achieve is <700 nmol/L. For those with advanced CVDs: <400 nmol/L. For Large-HDL (the 2 largest species of HDL - removing fats from the macrophages in artery wall plaque so they do not die in place & add to the problem),at least >9 μmol/L. Requires a variety of strategies, including HFLC.

In brief: Multiple ways

From an angioplasty to a cardiac bypass.
Modifying your risk factors are best, stopping smoking, lowering your cholesterol, losing weight, etc.
