Real-world study backs PCI for symptomatic stable CAD

Real-world data support use of the intervention in carefully selected patients, say doctors

Percutaneous revascularisation for symptomatic stable coronary artery disease is associated with a high degree of procedural success and an “excellent” safety profile, an Australian study shows. 

Despite increasing patient and procedural complexity, Melbourne-led cardiologists report an overall mortality rate of less than 0.1% and a significant drop in major bleeding rates.
