ABSTRACT
The article focuses on a study on the noninferiority of percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) to coronary artery bypass grafting (CABG) for preventing major adverse cardiac or cerebrovascular events in patients with severe coronary artery disease. The results concluded that risks for the composite endpoint and repeated revascularization were higher after PCI than after CABG, but risk for stroke was lower.
