Emory Angioplasty versus Surgery Trial. A trial comparing long-term outcomes of patients with multivessel coronary disease undergoing revascularization with PTCA to CABG
Conclusion No significant difference in mortality between CABG and PTCA as primary therapy for multivessel disease; PTCA had a greater need for repeat revascularization
