Hi there!

While 40% or less blockades are largely management medically and procedures like angioplasty/ stenting are nor particularly required; the region supplied by the artery with 100% blockade (LCX) is more likely to be dead and chances are that it may not respond to medical/ interventional/ surgical procedures and there may not be much benefit of undergoing a surgery, unless the block has been recent and tests show reversible ischaemia. I would suggest getting a second opinion form another cardiologist with the same angiography report with radiological images (other than your primary cardiologist who has suggested a PTCA) before deciding on a management plan.
Hope this is helpful.

Take care!
