Hello,Welcome to Just Answer. My name is***** and I will be helping you today.
Stents are one possibility for blocked arteries, including branches of coronary arteries, in some patients.
However, only his own vascular doctor can determine if your father is a candidate for this particular procedure after reviewing all of his medical history, examining him, and looking at his MRIs. There is a lot more in determining if a particular patient is a candidate than just knowing that the artery is blocked and that stents are available.
Please let me know what additional questions you have about this. I'm sorry that no one can give you a yes or no answer without a significant workup.
