In brief: Sorry for your loss

Angioplasty presents a very real risk of a few % for death shortly afterwards.
I did not get the account you attached, but i'm sorry that this procedure, which often returns people to many more good-quality years was a failure. Or there may have been another cause; without autopsy there is no way to know. I wish you comfort & hope you get you answers.
