Coronary disease, stable, non-acute: Revascularization (bypass) versus optimal medical treatment alone
DISEASE INTERVENTION COMPARISON RESULTS
N Engl J Med. 2011 Apr 28;364(17):1607-16. Epub 2011 Apr 4 Randomized Controlled Trial, Multicenter Study
IN coronary disease, left ventricular dysfunction The Use of
coronary artery bypass surgery
As Treatment, Acute
Is equal Than
medical treatment alone
To modify mortality from any cause: 36% bypass VS 41% medical Tt (P=0.12). Bypass surgery reduced death from adjudicated cardiovascular cause and hospitalizations
