Dr. Pankaj Kulshrestha
Surgery - Thoracic
In brief: Angina
I presume that angioplasty was done to some artery other than right coronary and right coronary remains 100% occluded.
If angina is under control, medical management is acceptable. Bypass surgery can be offered if pain is persistent and medications are ineffective or disease progresses. The initial treatment is usually medical.

In brief: Situation specific
Theres data that suggests in certain scenarios medical management is equivalent to interventions like stenting.
But that's a blanket statement and the reality is, it's very situation specific. Best to talk it over with your trusted cardiologist.
