ABSTRACT
At this time the treatment of angina pectoris, preinfarction angina, and myocardial infarction is still a primary responsibility of the internist or general practitioner and his consultants. Where medical measures are inadequate and where careful study including coronary angiography indicate to an experienced committee of clinicians that revascularization is indicated, this operation offers a better quality of life, freedom from fear and pain, and as far as we can ascertain, at least greater longevity than identical cases that did not have the opportunity of coronary surgery. The large number of operations being performed, the low mortality with experienced teams (1-2.5%), and its rapidly growing acceptance throughout the country seem to indicate that coronary surgery has now proved itself a reliable and useful method of alleviating human suffering.
