Hannan, Ph.D.: Everolimus-Eluting Bypass or Stents Surgery for Multivessel HEART DISEASE Coronary-artery bypass grafting and percutaneous coronary intervention are treatment options for individuals with multivessel coronary artery disease. Prior studies show a mortality good thing about CABG, as compared with PCI.1-4 However, these scholarly studies compared CABG with balloon angioplasty, bare-metal stents, or first-generation drug-eluting stents. Second-era drug-eluting stents have thinner struts and also have thinner and even more biocompatible polymer with more uniform polymer covering of the strut surface, leading to less thrombogenicity and swelling, in comparison with the first-generation drug-eluting stents and bare-metal stents even.5 Consequently, the newer-generation drug-eluting stents, especially the everolimus-eluting stent, have been proven to reduce the risks of death, myocardial infarction, and stent thrombosis, in comparison with bare-metal first-generation or stents drug-eluting stents.6,7 However, previous studies did not review CABG with PCI by using second-generation drug-eluting stents.
