Revascularization procedures for the treatment of stable angina pectoris: a state of the art review - nonsystematic review

Record ID 31997008263
To examine the safety, efficacy, appropriateness, cost and comparative utility of available revascularization techniques. It attempts to assist clinicians in identifying stable angina patients who may benefit from mechanical revascularization and in choosing the appropriate technique.
Most patients with stable angina pectoris can be successfully treated with medical therapy to manage risk factors and control symptoms. PTCA and CABG are safe, effective and largely complementary treatments for selected high risk patients with stable angina pectoris who require more invasive therapy. Clinical situations are often preferentially managed by one of the two invasive procedures. For patients suitable for either technique, on-going clinical trials have yet to determine a clear advantage for either intervention.
