My father's echo report is showing only 30 to 35 % heart pumping and his angiography is showing that there is one block. Doctors had given advise to do angioplasty. Whether this 30 to 35 % pumping is good enough? Should we go for angioplasty? Is there any solution to improve % of heart pumping? Whether this will reduce my father's life span?

Angioplasty means opening and clearing of blocks in the blood vessel supplying blood to the heart, as blood supply to the heart will improve by doing angioplasty, heart functioning will become better. This is the only solution and answer to your query.
