ABSTRACT
The article focuses on a study on modification of the relative effects of percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) and coronary artery bypass grafting(CABG) by patient characteristics on long-term mortality in patients with multivessel coronary artery disease (CAD). The results concluded that CABG and PCI have similar effects on long-term mortality.
