Triple Vessel Disease
My father is 65 Years old. He is suffereing from high blood pressure for last 22 years and is Diabetic for last 17 years. He had undergone Angioplasty in 2004 and in 2007 and there are 3 medicated stents in his heart. Now again he is suffering from chest pain, therefore he has undergone Angiograph. The report of Angiograph is as follows.

LMCA : Normal
LAD : Type III vessel, Ostial segment has 70% discrete lesion
D1 : Proximal segment has 70% discrete lesion
RAMUS : Proximal segment has 80% lesion, Distal vessel normal
LCX : Ostial segment has 70% intra luminal occlusion
RCA : Dominant system, mid segment totally occluded filling retrogradely
Final Impression : Triple Vessel Disease
Recommendation : Early Revasucularization

Now is father is not ready to undergo a bypass surgery as he thinks he is getting older and he may not recover to normalcy post operation. His Thyroid levels are also not normal T3 & T4 are in normal range but TSH is 0.006 where normal levels are between 0.5 to 8.9. The doctor has prescribed durgs to this problem.

Is there any other option where we can treat my father without taking him to bypass surgery? or Bypass is the best possible route to treat his present condition.

Please help me out in this issue.
