Initial strategy of revascularization versus optimal medical therapy for improving outcomes in ischemic heart disease: a review of the literature

Songco AV et al. – Authors conclude that revascularization and medical therapy should be used as complementary strategies. Available data have shown some benefits of revascularization in addition to medical therapy, but further trials are needed to better define the optimal population and magnitude and cost effectiveness of adding revascularization to optimal medical therapy.
