Hello Arthur! My name is***** to JustAnswer. I'm reviewing your question now, and will post back with your reply momentarily.

Can you please tell a bit more what test was done which found the blockage ?


Customer: replied 8 months ago.

Thanks for the information

Sometime the disease in small arteries can be present and if it is very mild then not treated during the bypass surgery

So it is possible they might be referring to the small vessel disease which is a mild one and will not effect the overall functioning of the heart
