Abstract/OtherAbstract:
The treatment of coronary artery disease in general and the results achieved with coronary artery bypass grafting in particular continue to be intensely studied. Long-term follow-up from ongoing studies and the studies of the role of percutaneous interventions continue to provide new information. The refinement of our understanding of long-term outcome in various subsets of patients, preoperative risk factors, technical modifications, and postoperative interventions will influence the selection of appropriate treatment for patients with coronary artery disease.
