Dr. Ashwin B. Mehta, Director of Cardiology, Jaslok Hospital & Research Centre and Consultant Cardiologist, Breach Candy & Lilavati Hospital, will discuss on interventional cardiology and whether angioplasty or surgery last longer. Coronary disease is a progressive illness and it is an aging process. As the age advances more and more blockages are developed. He further says that it depends upon how good care is been taken after the procedure. He will describe the various stages when angioplasty or bypass surgery is needed or the patient can be managed with medical treatment. Depending upon the age group, risk factors and the complexity of the blockages, the surgical procedure is decided.
