Surgery More Likely Than Angioplasty to Relieve Pain for Patients With Coronary Artery Disease
Date:10/15/2007

10 percent within 5 years. The need is

significantly higher among patients who receive angioplasty -- 24

percent more at 1 year and 33 percent more at 5 years.

-- About 0.6 percent more patients receiving bypass have a stroke during

the first 30 days after the procedure than patients receiving

angioplasty.

-- Studies that measured patients' quality of life 6 months to 3 years

after undergoing the procedures found significantly more improvement

for bypass surgery patients than for balloon angioplasty patients. The

difference, which equalizes after 3 years, was attributed to angina

relief.

The new report, Comparative Effectiveness of Percutaneous Coronary Interventions and Coronary Artery Bypass Grafting for Coronary Artery Disease, is the latest analysis from AHRQ's Effective Health Care program. That program compares alternative treatments for significant health conditions and makes the findings public. It is intended to help patients, doctors, nurses, and others choose the most effective treatments. More about the program and other reports can be found at http://effectivehealthcare.ahrq.gov.
