Hello, thank you for your question,

Your question actually the answer depends on what you mean by heal. If you mean being symptom free in the sense of being pain free and preventing heart attacks then that is achievable.

Basically if this is indeed a narrowing of the coronary arteries of the heart (coronary artery disease / CAD) then this condition is not a condition that comes in a short time, but is the result of a long process of many years. Whatever you do / give, even if the ring has been installed (if there are indications for installation) then basically the plaque or narrowing is still there, the risk of heart attack is still there, especially if there are risk factors that trigger it such as high blood pressure, diabetes, high cholesterol, a history of previous heart attacks and in the blood family, and smoking.

Drug therapy given is basically to control symptoms, improve quality of life and reduce the risk of new / repeated heart attacks--but they can still happen. Likewise, therapies such as ring installation and even bypass surgery are actually aimed at prolonging life expectancy, controlling symptoms and improving the quality of life of the sufferer. But again, repeated attacks can still occur, especially if the risk factors are not controlled.

so make sure your friends regularly check with the doctor according to the schedule, take the medication that is given according to the rules even though in the long term according to the doctor's advice because the goal is to reduce risk factors. If you smoke, you must stop.
