Is Diffuse Coronary Artery Disease a Contraindication for Surgery?

Q:
I know the diffuse coronary artery disease is very serious. And I have consulted almost three medical centers. All of them don’t recommend a surgery. Is it a contraindication for surgery?
A:  
Not necessarily.
There is still related surgery with reasonably good prognosis. What we should do is to evaluate all surgeries according to different centers and doctors’ advice.
All those assessments are major criteria for deciding surgery or not.
