If this percentage of blockage is not in LMCA then no intervention is indicated until the ischaemia is established by doing a stress thallium test or a FFR  test
Please give the detailed angiography report so that I can comment on it

Hello...... In fluid dynamics blood flow is reduce to one forth when vessel diameter is reduced to half. So even minimal reduction in vessel diameter reduces blood flow to heart drastically... by pass surgery is only option ....normal heart rate is 60 to 100 beat per minute.....
