Coronary Arteriography
About This Community:

Coronary Heart Disease (CHD) (aka: Coronary Artery Disease (CAD); Atherosclerosis; is the leading cause of death worldwide. It is a disease in which a waxy substance called plaque (plak) builds up inside the coronary arteries. These arteries supply oxygen-rich blood to your heart muscle. Over time, CHD can weaken the heart muscle and lead to heart failure or irregular heart rhythms (arrhythmia). The purpose of the community is to share support and information with Coronary Heart Disease patients, their loved ones, and caregivers.

Please looking at all above details, can you please advise me that what should we do in terms of treatment, should we continue medication or we should go for surgery, what exactly this report says that how good or bad is the heart condition. Age of my father is around 60 years. He had a hear attach about one and half year ago. Since then we came to know that he is having heart problem. He is not having diabtese, no blood pressure, no cholestrol nothing at all, he doesn't even smoke

I assume that he had an angiogram from one and a half years ago. Do you have the results from that procedure?
