Hi there!

Well yes, with significantly elevated Trop I levels, this is likely to have been a heart attack and the patency of the blood vessels supplying the heart, including the vascular grafts, would need to be checked with an angiography and if a block is found, it would need to be dealt with accordingly. Blood thinners such as heparin are usually recommended as a part of management of myocardial infarction (heart attack) for improved prognosis. I would suggest discussing the situation, the suggested management plan and the expected prognosis in detail with his treating cardiologist.
Hope this is helpful.

Take care!
