The article focuses on 23 randomized controlled trials (RCTs) comparing percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) and coronary artery bypass graft (CABG) surgery in patients requiring coronary revascularization who are eligible for both the interventions. Trials found out that PCI has lower risk for procedural stroke but higher risks for angina and repeated revascularization than did CABG in patients requiring coronary revascularization.

    Off-pump coronary artery bypass grafting may be combined with adjunctive transmyocardial laser revascularization to optimize revascularization. This approach may be advantageous for high-risk patients, particularly those having undergone previous sternotomies. From October 2000 through May 2001,...
