EPISODE 9 | Taking on Periprocedural MI
Sorry, the video is currently unavailable.
The latest angle in the ongoing heated debate around the EXCEL trial, comparing percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) and coronary artery bypass grafting for revascularization of the left main coronary artery, concerns how important a role periprocedural myocardial infarction (MI) should play in this comparison. Drs. Spencer King and Ron Waksman take on this topic and say, in part, that perhaps the endpoints in these studies of PCI and surgery need to be re-examined.
