Q. My father has a triple vessel block. There is 80% block in LMCA, 70% block in LT circumflex, LAD and RCA. Is there a medical management? What are the chances of restenosis after CABG?

A.  CABG (Coronary artery bypass grafting) is superior to medical management in this setting. The chance of reblockage after CABG is about 10% in ten years for arterial grafts and 50% in 10 years for venous grafts.
