Just as important as angioplasty, stents, and surgery, are heart-healthy lifestyle as
well as critical mediations such as aspirin or other medications that thin the blood
to prevent heart attacks, and medications such as statins that lower the
cholesterol and help keep the plaque in arteries from getting worse.
