arterial plaque

What is the best way to remove plaque from my arteries.  I have two partial blockages.  One stent installed  3 years ago following a heart attack.  I am 76 years.
Thank You

What cholesterol medication are you taking?  Lipitor studies have been shown to help reduce plaque that is already there.
