In their article, Chen and Jepson1 discussed the advances in coronary artery stent technology. However, the review did not outline the indications for the newer and more expensive technologies mentioned, and did not indicate how stenting compares with the established practice of coronary artery bypass grafting (CABG) for patients with coronary artery disease. How does percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) compare with CABG based on current evidence?
