Dear sir. A proper opinion can only be given if a cardiologist sees the angiography CD and other relevant details. But from what you say, the best treatment appears to be:
1. the LAD vessel needs to be opened (the best option between bypass & angioplasty can only be decided after a cardiologist sees the angiography CD) .
2. Optimisation of the medicines. Fluid and salt restriction.
The blockage described by you seems to be quite dangerous. So please visit a qualified cardiologist as early as possible and get your father personally examined & show the CD, so that appropriate treatment can be given at the earliest. Hope this helps.
