coronary artery bypass grafting (CABG) for multivessel disease were not designed to detect a difference in mortality.
Some cardiologists criticized the trial on the grounds that the inclusion criteria were too restrictive, rates of compliance with medical therapy were much higher than is typically observed in routine practice, the trial was underpowered, the trial was performed before the widespread diffusion of drug-eluting stents, which are associated with better outcomes, and cardiologists should have implanted more stents in patients randomized to PCI with multivessel disease (Kereiakes et al.

There were predominantly single vessel disease in young patients and multivessel disease in older patients accordance with previous studies.
Among 214 patients with multivessel disease, adverse event rates during a mean follow-up of 2.
Many interventional cardiologists have dismissed the results of BARI and other smaller studies favoring CABG as irrelevant in the contemporary era of much-improved PCI techniques and drug-eluting stents, even though the current joint AHA/American College of Cardiology/Society for Coronary Angiography and Interventions guidelines state as a class ha recommendation that "it is reasonable" to choose CABG with left internal mammary artery grafting over PCI in patients with diabetes and multivessel disease.
To account for potential confounding effects, we calculated the risk for death for butyrylcholinesterase activity after adjusting for established cardiovascular risk factors, including age, sex, body mass index, hypertension, smoking, diabetes, family history of CAD, total cholesterol, HDL cholesterol, triglycerides, creatinine, albumin, multivessel disease, revascularization status (including percutaneous coronary intervention and coronary artery bypass surgery), and presentation of CAD (stable CAD or ACS).
Therefore, one limitation of PET perfusion imaging is reduced sensitivity for detection of multivessel disease that has resulted in decreased perfusion in multiple myocardial territories.
As a result, multislice CTCA can potentially help identify patients who have near-normal MPI scans due to balanced multivessel disease.

There have been several studies evaluating optimum revascularization strategies in multivessel disease, as well as some for single-vessel coronary artery disease (Versaci and others 1997; Gersh 1997; Mariani and others 1997; Frierson and others 1992; Hueb 1995; Cameron and others 1994; Goy and others 1994).
