Repeat Bypass
I had by-pass surgery 11 years ago. I developed Angina and yesterday a cath showed 1 RAD-LAD and SVG-RCA were totally blocked. Is there any difference in the incidence of a heart attack if my symptoms of angina are treated with Ranxia versus repeat by-pass surgery?

Generally, medication that treats symptoms (angina) is an effective therapy.  But you have had extensive surgery to your heart, and you indicate total blockage of some vessels.  Just to control your symptom (angina) with mediction may not be the appropriate treatment.  Medication that treats your angina almost always indicates your heart is receiving sufficent blood flow (med dilates vessels).  Too many variables involved; your surgeon would be able to make the correct decision.
