The long-term effect of stents in patients with multivessel disease involving the proximal left anterior descending artery was investigated. At 3 years, there was no difference in the combined incidence of death, stroke, and myocardial infarction in either group, but the need for repeat revascularization was more frequent in the group with stenting than in the group with coronary artery bypass grafting.
