Hi there!

Appropriate management would depend on details of the actual block. If these are 2-5 point blocks, angioplasty may be a feasible option. However, if the block is diffuse/ throughout the artery(s) an angioplasty may not be feasible and a bypass graft may be advised. It would be best to discuss the situation and the appropriate management plan in detail with your treating cardiologist.
Hope this is helpful.

Take care!
