Benedetto U, Amrani M, Bahrami T, Gaer J, De Robertis F, Smith RD, Raja SQ, on behalf of the Harefield Cardiac Outcomes Research Group

Benedetto and co-authors analyzed propensity-matched groups of patients who underwent CABG or PCI (n= 1097 pairs) for multivessel disease, and found that outcomes were comparable at 1-year follow-up, while CABG did significantly better during follow-up to 5 years and Kaplan-Meier curves continued to diverge even further after 5 years.
