It depends on cardiac demands, where the artery is, and other co-morbid disorders. It also depends on treatment plans and patient compliance.

How long ? …
There is no equation as to how long one can live with 90% blockage !
If a patient had arrhythmia ( VT/VF) due to this , he collapses , otherwise he may continue to live with some activity limitation for a long time !
My credential for this answer is many years experience as an Interventional Cardiovascular Physician and current Cath Lab Director, NYPQ Hospital.
If you have or a family member has a 90% arterial blockage then you get together with a physician and come up with an approriate plan of treatment.
A well executed treatment plan is the best way to handle any form of artery disease. Stop thinking about how long life will last and start thinking about how to live with problem you have by taking care of it with the assistance of/from your physicians.

No. What? How is that a question.
You may think of arteries like pipes. Sometimes pipes become partially blocked by substances like limescale, making them look like this:
If you put acid or some other chemicals through the pipes, it dissolves the limescale and the pipe is restored.
So why doesn’t something like this work on the heart?
The problem is that the buildup in the artery isn’t on the inside. Instead, it’s within the wall of the vessel. The fatty buildup is called atheroma:
Blood vessels are lined with cells called endothelium. The endothelium covers up the atheroma. Nothing you put in your blood will “dissolve” the athero
I have two stents, one in the LAD placed after an MI in 2000 at age 54 and a second in the right coronary artery in 2014, at age 69 following an MI caused by a blood clot. I am now 72. My heart is functioning well. I am physically active and hike many miles a week over rough mountain terrain and maintain an active social and community life. I travel, write, do research on things that interest me., and am an amateur photographer. I don’t know how long t…

You can live with one clear caroid artery. There are two main arteries and two smaller ones. The smaller ones can adapt and will take some of the workload. I have one totally blocked the others are perfectly clear. The will not operate if one is totally blocked. It is a major operation if they have to operate. If both arteries are block surgèy on one is done called an endoscopy. This surgery is done quite often.
D1 is conventionally a branch of the Left Anterior Descending(LAD) artery which is a coronary artery to begin with. LAD as such provides blood perfusion to the anterior wall of the heart and the interventricular septum in most individuals. It follows that D1 does part of the job.
Coming to the actual question, it depends on a number of factors how dangerous it is and what the therapeutic approach to its treatment is.
- Percentage of occlusion on a coronary angiography. A higher amount of occlusion demands revascularisation by either a coronary stent or bypass vascular grafting.
- Location of the occl
First of all, please relax. It is lucky that a person is diagnosed with a heart vessel block (coronary artery disease) and is considered viable for angioplasty as a treatment option.
Browsing too much on this topic, trying new diet fads, asking multiple people with multiple, switching between several doctors and getting conscious about symptoms of the body are the first things that shall be AVOIDED.
Search engines and internet information are much as a boon for general information as is NOT, when it comes to expert medical ‘knowledge’.
WE, as a team, have seen several thousand coronary arte
How long does a person live with diabetes?
I asked my first diabetes doctor that, back in 1999. He said the mean time to death for a T-2 is 15 years.
This means that at the 7 1/2 year mark half are gone. This is through a combination of causes, age, diet, lack of exercise, overweight, misuse of medication etc.
I said ‘But I want to live past 15 years”.
He said ‘Eat right, exercise, keep doing what the doctors tell you to do and hope for the best”.
I’m now at year 20 and 72 years old.
The other answer is fine, but let me expand a little on it . I’ve had 6 heart attacks along with 25 angioplasties ( where they open the artery with a balloon that is expanded and then removed ) and 11 stents. One of those stents is completely closed up with a blockage ( I have what is called peripheral flow around the blocked stent, my heart grew that after a prolonged high percentage blockage ), but I’m still alive. The first heart attack was before stents were even used on patients, that was when I was 40 years old. I’ll be 65 years old this year. I’m very lucky and have a really good cardio
