Complete vs Incomplete Revascularization in Multivessel Coronary Artery Disease

The goal of coronary artery disease (CAD) treatment is coronary revascularization and repair of cardiac perfusion. Subsequently, revascularization tends to reduce long-term mortality, yet very few data exist to show a definite benefit of complete revascularization (CR) vs incomplete revascularization (IR) in clinical practice.A study from the Journal of the American College of Cardiology has found that CR may be the most suitable revascularization method for patients with multivessel CAD. The study was a systematic review and meta-analysis of published studies (observational and randomized clinical trials) that compared CR vs IR in multivessel CAD. All-cause mortality was used as the primary outcome. Approximately 35 studies were identified, which included nearly 90,000 patients.

Why Complete Revascularization Should be the Standard for Most High-Risk PCI Cases, Dr. Jeffrey Moses

Dr. Jeffrey Moses, Director of Interventional Cardiac Therapeutics at Columbia University Medical Center, NY and Director of Complex Coronary Interventions at St. Francis Hospital, has been a pioneer in developing the techniques and data to optimize complex PCI. At this year’s Hartzler Interventional Cardiology Symposium, Dr. Moses presents a strong case for why complete revascularization … Continue reading “Why Complete Revascularization Should be the Standard for Most High-Risk PCI Cases, Dr. Jeffrey Moses”
