Hello, my grandfather has been suffering from angina pectoris for almost a decade now. Last time he went to a doctor, it was said that his left coronary artery is almost completely obstructed and that something has to be done about it. I am concerned about him and I also heard that the mentioned artery has two branches which imply two procedures. Can a person have two angioplasties?

Yes, it is possible. But, you should not worry much. It is a routine procedure done for improving the blood flow and the functioning of the heart muscle. It will improve your grandfather’s life and even give him several years more, although he will have to use some additional meds to maintain the situation after the angioplasties.
