ABSTRACT
The article reports that in patients with multivessel coronary artery disease, the combined endpoint of cardiac death, myocardial infarction (MI), and refractory angina occurred more frequently with percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) than with coronary artery bypass grafting (CABG) or medical therapy (MT). The article concludes by way of a study undertaken that the composite endpoint occurred in more patients who received PCI than in those who received MT or CABG, and in more MT patients than in the CABG group.
