SCAI: CARDia Data Find Diabetic Patients With Complex Heart Disease Can Safely Choose PCI
Date:9/1/2008

ely broaden their options."

CARDia also examined whether, after undergoing PCI or surgery, patients required a repeat procedure. The difference in repeat revascularization between PCI and bypass surgery was very small but statistically significant, despite an unusually low rate for both groups (9.9% for PCI vs. 2.0% for bypass; p=0.001). Further, when the patients who received drug-eluting stents (rather than bare metal stents or the entire study population) were specifically analyzed, the difference in revascularization in the PCI group was even lower, and the difference in the rates of repeat revascularization was less important (7.3% for PCI vs. 2.0% for bypass; p=0.013). This represented about two-thirds of the study population and more closely reflects current practices.

"When you compare only the patients who had angioplasty with drug-eluting stents with the bypass surgery patients, you find very similar repeat revascularization rates," says Dr. Weiner. "We'll want to see if these findings continue as the follow-up proceeds since the surgery patients are less likely to have repeat revascularization procedures this early, but it's a very good sign for patients who are candidates for PCI and prefer it because it is less invasive and easier to recover from than surgery. In our view, this is very good news for patients because it gives them more options for their care."
