Abstract

In the Bypass Angioplasty Revascularization in Type 1 and Type 2 Diabetes study, diabetic patients with multivessel coronary artery disease had similar long-term mortality whether treated with CABG or PCI, the revascularization determined by the physician's choice. This was despite the frequent use of a strategy of selective revascularization in the PCI arm. Randomized trials comparing PCI and CABG specifically in diabetes, that is, Coronary Artery Revascularization in Diabetes and Future Revascularization Evaluation in Diabetes Mellitus: Optimal Management, will show whether drug-eluting stents further enhance PCI outcomes over the long term.
