Coronary Artery Bypass Grafting

Coronary artery bypass grafting (CABG), commonly called a heart bypass surgery, is done when the arteries of the heart narrow due to plaque formation and are not able to carry sufficient blood to heart muscles. The surgeon uses grafts blood vessel from other parts of the body to make sure the heart muscles get enough blood.

CABG was done on me in 1996 November.A total of four crafts were done. In 2006 Coronary angiogram study was done and it was found that one of the graft is blocked. Nothing has been done.

Their lab findings were :- Native 3VD, LIMA to LAD patent but distal native totally occluded, arterial graft to disgonal patent, SVG to RPDA patent, SVG to OM not done.

Can you please explain what the finding mean. Right now I am on the following medications:
Vasteral 20mg - tds Omeprazole 20mg - od Cardiprin 100mg - od Ticlid 250mg - od Imdex 90mg - od Coversyl 4mg - od Spironolactone 12.5mg - od Frusemide 40mg - tds Glucobay 50mg - pre breakfast Rosuvastatin 20mg - od Carvedilol 31.25mg bd

I feel my carliologist is managing me with Double anti platelet. I need help. Can someone explain it to me?
