My 91 yo uncle has a mild heart attack sat. He has moderate to severe blockage. Should we have the angioplasty? He's been in excellent health.

In brief: It's his decision

Unless you're his legal guardian or he has granted you the legal right to make medical decisions for him, his doctors have to tell him the benefits vs.
Risks of angioplasty & abide by his decision. Doctors can only share medical information with family members for whom he has provided written consent.
