ABSTRACT
The article reports on a study by P.W. Serruys and colleagues which states that coronary artery bypass grafting (CABG) and percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) did not differ clinically for angina relief in severe coronary artery disease (CAD). The study concluded that in patients with severe CAD, CABG provided greater relief from angina than did PCI.
