This article reports on the long-term (up to 15 year) survival of patients who participated in the COURAGE trial. 


Wow, did anybody actually read the paper before submitting this JANS? It would be much more informative to actually report some interesting results of the study (such as: PCI showed no survival advantage at 15 years (HR 1.03, P = 0.76)).
