Best treatment for triple vessel coronary artery disease
In most cases, coronary artery bypass surgery will be the best treatment, depending on heart function and other illnesses (called co-morbidities). His age of 74, diabetes, hypertension and smoking are minor risk factors that were routinely present in the patients I operated at the time. The surgical risk for not surviving in an otherwise healthy patient would be about 1%, meaning that 99% of patients can be expected would do well barring complications (less than 10% risk).
Hope this helps,
