Hello there we understand your finger towards your mother. Coronary artery disease is a disease where there will be a blockade in it restrciting the blood supply to heart as it happens there would damage if heart tissue and it function alters. To know the percent of block angiography is advised. if the block is less than 60% then the treatment would be medical If it is mote than 90% there surgery has to be done. Thank you
