Impact of postangioplasty restenosis on comparisons of outcome between angioplasty and bypass grafting. Coronary Angioplasty versus Bypass Revascularisation Investigation (CABRI) Investigators.

Restenosis is a major limitation of percutaneous transluminal coronary angioplasty (PTCA). In this study, we assessed the impact of restenosis on PTCA with reference to coronary angioplasty bypass grafting (CABG). In the Coronary Angioplasty versus Bypass Revascularisation Investigation (CABRI) PTCA population, those who had restenosis were defined as those… CONTINUE READING
