Percutaneous Coronary Intervention

From AM, Al Badarin FJ, Cha SS et al.

Mayo Clinic College of Medicine, Rochester, MN, USA.

 EuroIntervention 2010;6:269–76.

Editor’s note: Historically, patients with multivessel coronary artery disease (CAD) requiring treatment were thought to be candidates for coronary artery bypass grafting (CABG) as opposed to the predecessor of modern interventional cardiological procedures, percutaneous coronary angio-plasty. As has recently been reviewed, an important subset of such patients comprises those with diabetes and complex coronary arterial lesions who require revascularization (Coron Artery Dis 2010;21:189–98).
