Benefits of Complete Versus Target-only Revascularization Examined in Multivessel CAD
Results of a meta-analysis suggest that complete revascularization is associated with a reduced risk for cardiac events, but not overall mortality, among patients with ST-segment elevation myocardial infarction and multivessel coronary artery disease. The researchers analyzed data from 10 trials comparing any combination of four procedures: complete revascularization at the time of primary percutaneous coronary intervention, complete revascularization as a staged procedure during hospitalization or after discharge and culprit-only revascularization.
