The Cardiovascular field is one of the fastest-growing areas in medicine with new devices and drugs introduced with promising results to enhance a patients quality of life and change the outcomes.
Interventional cardiology is currently in major focus in all cardiology meetings and seminars. The role of coronary artery bypass surgery (CABG) and Percutaneous Transluminal Coronary Angioplasty (PTCA) in acute coronary syndrome is well established. In stable patients, these highly invasive procedures role in reducing mortality is still not well established and still under investigation.
Some recent major trials like Clinical Outcomes Utilizing Revascularization and Aggressive Drug Evaluation (COURAGE) and Bypass Angioplasty Revascularization Investigation Type 2 diabetes ( BARI 2D) randomized trials fail to establish reduction of overall mortality and myocardial infarction through these invasive treatments. To add to the surprise recent ORBITA trial, which is a double-blinded randomized study showed in stable patients, PTCA did not improve exercise time, chest pain or quality of life when compared to the placebo group.Read more
