In brief: Treatment of CAD

Treatment falls into 3 categories.
Medical therapy, angioplasty, and coronary bypass surgery. Medical therapy with Aspirin and cholesterol-lowering medications along with other medications usually forms the basis of treatment with angioplasty (stents) and bypass surgery reserved for those patients who do not respond fully to medical therapy.
