Please ensure that your artery blockages are more than 70% before considering angioplasty or bypass surgery. Speak to our cardiologist and he will teach you to estimate the blockages yourself. The decision to do the procedure depends on many other factors that need to be taken into consideration. If it is not urgent heart attack, do not make hasty decision, ask for second or third opinion.
