BACKGROUND In patients with stable coronary artery disease, it remains unclear whether an initial management strategy of percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) with intensive pharmacologic therapy and lifestyle intervention (optimal medical therapy) is superior to optimal medical therapy alone in reducing the risk of cardiovascular events. METHODS We conducted a randomized trial involving 2287 patients who had objective evidence of myocardial ischemia and significant coronary artery disease… Expand
