CABG may lower mortality compared to PCI in patients with diabetes and those older than 65

Level 2: Mid-level evidenceThe relative benefits of coronary artery bypass graft (CABG) and percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) continue to be actively debated and analyzed. A recent meta-analysis of individual data from 7,812 patients in 10 randomized trials suggests that CABG may be associated with lower mortality in certain populations (Lancet. 2009;373:1190-1197). There was no difference…

PCI with paclitaxel-eluting stent might be alternative to CABG

Level 1: Likely reliable evidenceIn patients with three-vessel and/or left main coronary artery disease (CAD), percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) with paclitaxel-eluting stents is equivalent to coronary artery bypass grafting (CABG) for overall mortality and MI rate at 12 months. PCI patients had increased risk for repeat revascularization procedures but a reduced risk of subsequent stroke…
