PCI and CABG Provide Similar Intermediate-Term Outcomes in Left Main CAD
from The Cardiology Advisor
Percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) using a second-generation everolimus-eluting stent provides greater early quality-of-life benefits compared with coronary artery bypass grafting (CABG) surgery in patients with left main coronary artery disease (LMCAD), according to a substudy of the Evaluation of XIENCE versus Coronary Artery Bypass Surgery for Effectiveness of Left Main Revascularization (EXCEL) trial presented at the Transcatheter Cardiovascular Therapeutics (TCT) 2017 meeting, held Oct. 29-Nov. 2, in Denver.
