Advice           Surgical Opinion.

We went and to doc for angiography and angioplasty but the doc didn't perform angioplasty after angiography and told us to consult a surgeon. Please help me to understand the severity of his disease and what are the possible treatments. My dad gone through echo, and thallium scan test as well as other necessary tests please let me know if reports for those are required. Please HELP!

Your dad suffers from stenosis in all three major coronary arteries.
Further, the stenosis extends over longer distances and at multiple positions per artery.

There are at least 5 positions where intervention really is required.
If at all possible, it would require many stents to restore the blood flow in the heart.

In my opinion, CBAG is the better option here.
