I have 3 stents consecutively in the right coronary artery. Just below the 3rd stent, I have a blockage of 100%. This was found after a heart attack last week. The doctors can't perform an angioplasty because of the 100% blockage. The local bypass surgeon will not do a bypass because the veins below the blockage are only 1 mm in size.
Has anything been written on the subject of small veins?

Thanks,

larry

Thank you for asking at Ehealth forum!

I read your question and I understand your concern.
Just ballooning can be done.
I hope it helps. Stay in touch with your healthcare provider for further guidance as our answers are just for education and counselling purposes and cannot be an alternative to actual visit to a doctor.
Take care
