safety for the two treatment groups, with no overall statistically significant differences between PCI and CABG surgery in rates of death or myocardial infarction (MI, or heart attack), although there were more strokes in patients treated with CABG surgery. The rate of repeat revascularization was higher in the PCI group, although most procedures in the PCI group were repeat PCI, with only a small percentage requiring CABG surgery. However, because of the increased need for repeat procedures, the overall 12-month MACCE (Major Adverse Cardiovascular or Cerebrovascular Event rate, including all-cause death, stroke, MI and repeat revascularization) was higher for PCI.

The safety and effectiveness of the TAXUS Express2 Stent System have not been established in patients with left main or three-vessel disease.
