In this issue of the journal, two distinguished groups of investigators have published long-term (3-year) statistical models for predicting mortality following the two primary invasive treatments for coronary artery disease, coronary artery bypass graft (CABG) surgery and percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI)(1,2). The studies are of note in a few respects: (1) they are huge in that they each comprise more than 340,000 patients who have undergone the procedure of interest, (2) they utilize registries maintained by national professional societies, the Society of Thoracic Surgeons and the American College of Cardiology Foundation, (3) data from each of the registries are linked to mortality data from the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) in order to obtain long-term mortality for patients in the study.
