In brief: No cure
Coronary artery disease is a progressive disease involving the arteries of the heart.
It is usually associated with arterial disease in other parts of the body, too. There is no cure for cad. The balloons and stents and bypass surgeries we do only treat a problem the disease causes. Risk factor modification like stop smoking often will help slow down the progression of the disease.
