If he feels fine, then why did he have the tests? If I wanted him to take a short flight, I would make sure he takes a couple of baby aspirin before the plane takes off. This will stop clots forming and prevent heart attack. However, I wouldn't start jetting him all round the country, just one short trip. Is it urgent? I would have to say I don't know because I have no idea about his collateral situation. If he has collaterals, he is fine for many months. If not, it is urgent.

Hi. I looked at the report and I have to agree that bypass is the best option because the LM is blocked by an estimated 60%. This vessel comes straight from the main aortic artery and feeds both the LAD and LCx. The LAD also has a 99% blockage which causes concern. The RCA has blockages from the top to mid way down, up to 90%. You say he feels fine at the moment, does that mean he feels no symptoms? If so, then he is likely to have developed collaterals which are natural bypasses which open up on the heart. The Cardiologist needs to confirm this. I say bypass is the best option, but there is no guarantee with this. I had a triple bypass and it all closed up after 3 months. Many patients experience this after 2 weeks or less. So it takes a good surgeon at the least.
