The article cites a study, conducted by W.E. Boden and colleagues, which compares the effectiveness of percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) plus optimal medical therapy (OMT) and OMT alone for preventing cardiovascular events in patients with stable coronary artery disease (CAD). The researchers conducted randomized controlled trials. They concluded that initial management with PCI plus OMT was not more effective than OMT.
