What treatment for a heart blockage is best?
The test proves you have insufficient blood supply to a small part of your heart, but that overall function is normal. Many patients can be treated with medications and a heart-healthy lifestyle, and a procedure such as a stent or bypass is only needed for them when there are disabling and/or progressive symptoms, or the blockage is in a dangerous location.
The blockage is likely in your right coronary artery and treatment should depend on your symptoms and the heart muscle section at risk. You can calculate your options here.
Hope this helps,
