Alternative to the CGAB


I am seeking advice on if there are any alternatives to a triple heart bypass.

My father in law is 71 and had a heart attack last week. The angiogram has revealed that two arteries are nearly fully blocked and one us fully blocked so no stent advised and now waiting for the bypass.

I have been researching the market to see if there is a more non invasive procedure and see that the USA keeps mentioning Chelation therapy with another procedure that I can’t remember what it was called.

Please can anyone provide any advice on this area ?
