Hi there!

Well, it would be difficult to comment specifically on the situation. While interventional/ surgical options are only considered when there is viable tissue present that can be renewed with blood supply; in situation where tissue is believed to be dead and non-renewable, stenting or by-pass surgery is unlikely to be of benefit. Also some alternative circulations may open up in situations where one artery gets blood to continue blood supply to the region and such cases are usually managed on medications. I would suggest discussing the situation, the suggested management plan and the expected prognosis in detail with your treating cardiologist.
Hope this is helpful.

Take care!
