The authors report on the extended follow-up of Courage Trial patients for up to 15 years.  In this trial, patients with chronic stable angina were randomized to medical therapy alone versus PCI plus medical therapy.  At extended follow-up, there was no difference in overall survival between the two treatment strategies.
