Hi doctor,

My brother-in-law went for angiography, and he has two blockages 60% and 80%. Now, his doctor saying that it is urgent to get an operation and they will fix two stents. What will you suggest? Is it fine to go with a stent? Will it work lifetime? Or shall we opt bypass?

Hi.

Welcome back to icliniq.com.

  • If he does not have diabetes, then he can go for stents.
  • Angioplasty cannot guarantee for lifetime. Angioplasty works well for a decade.
  • Sometimes, a patient condition may not fit for CABG. Even CABG (coronary artery bypass grafting) also cannot give a lifetime guarantee.
