what is your question about this?
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
I wanted to knpw about the r s p t graph on an ecg . I had a stent put in on the 28th of april still have 6 blockages all within the main arteries. the stent was put into the largest artery and was 90% blocked, the other 2 main ones have 75% blockages plus there are 4 more in the smaller artires.. my main concern is Do you think more stents should be used to open the other main arteries or do a double by-pass?

I would do the stenting if possible
there is no evidence that bypass is superior
