In this study the cost-effectiveness of CABG vs. DES-PCI was analysed from a U.S. Healthcare perspective. Using 5-year cost and quality-of-life data from the SYNTAX trial and lifetime extrapolations, the authors found that CABG was an economically attractive treatment option for most patients with 3-VD or left main CAD disease.
