heart attack after 8 year of Bypass Surgery
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.

Until the Angiography report is done, there is no way you can give an opinion. You need to see where the blockage is located and the condition of the vessel surrounding the blockage. If the blockage is just a local problem in a small area, and the location is not too close to the joining of other vessels, then they will likely recommend Angioplasty (which is stenting). It could be that one of the bypass vessels is collapsing, or one of a hundred or more other scenarios. The one thing to remember is that Angioplasty has come a long way since 2004. They now have many more tools available and much better quality stents, including flexible ones which can be fitted in a curved vessel.
