Being a vegetarian doesn't always mean one keeps to a heart healthy diet. You don't mention what percentage of your calories are from fat.

French Fries are vegetarian, but a diet high in these is likely to lead to plugged arteries.

Many vegetarian offerings are high in fat - and some are very high in saturated fats. Those are the 'widowmakers' to avoid. Processed foods, and white rice/flour instead of whole grains can contribute to heart disease (and many other problems).

Some vegetarian diets include dairy products. These - even the low fat varieties - contain artery-blocking substances that are best avoided to prevent and reverse heart disease.

Granted, genetics plays a significant part in heart disease, but before considering any invasive procedures, it would be prudent to try a very low fat vegan diet for a month or two to see if there is any improvement.
