Angioplasty. I feel that you should discuss this with the physician who ordered the angioplasty.
No Clear Limit; ↑Ds. Angioplasty only hydraulically expands a vessel, is only temporary, narrowing can recur rapidly (reason for stents); an expensive way to treat symptoms. It also damages the vessel wall, promotes clots (why anti-clotting agents given) & complicates the disease. Better option: optimize NMR particle test (ldl ?700 nmol/l, large HDL ?9 µmol/l), hba1c ?6.0, 5.0 optimal, sbp ?120, ?body fat, ?activity.
