Major geographical variations in elective coronary revascularization by stents or surgery in England.
OBJECTIVES: Revascularization in stable coronary artery disease (CAD) can be achieved through percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) or coronary artery bypass grafting (CABG) depending on the anatomical pattern of CAD, comorbidities and patient preference. Recent studies in the USA, Canada and Australia show marked local variation in the PCI/CABG ratio that is unexplained by patient-related factors. This current study assesses the geographical variation in elective coronary revascularizatio...Expand abstract
