ABSTRACT
The article focuses on a study that investigate the impact of previous repeated percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) on the subsequent coronary artery bypass grafting (CABG). In the study, a total of 894 patients underwent first-time isolated elective CABG and these patients were divided into 3 groups. Cumulative probability of survival was estimated with the Kaplan-Meier method.
