The article focuses on a study which compares the effectiveness of percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) plus medical therapy (MT) with only MT in patients with stable obstructive coronary artery disease (CAD) and myocardial ischemia. The study used data from the bibliographical database MEDLINE for randomized controlled trial. The study concluded that there is no difference in both the treatment methods in terms of mortality and cardiovascular events.
