Is bypass surgery safe for a 65 years old lady? She is very weak. One doctor has suggested for pacemaker & thenafter stunts but other ones are saying bypass surgery is only wayout. Kindly suggest the better option & pros & cons. Thanks

As far as age is concerned , My oldest patient was 86 when he underwent bypass. Today he is 89 plus and is regularly seen visiting the market to buy stuff and does so by walk! Whether Pace maker /stents or bypass cannot be commented about with out seeing the patient and angiography disc and holter reports. There are specific indications for both nothing is better than the other.Meet a good doctor , ask him questions and proceed only if you are convinced
