http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-dyn/content/article/2007/03/26/AR2007032600700.html?nav=rss_email/components So just to sum up what I read: 1) For stable patients, medication works just as well as stents 2) The stent procedure WAS inherently thought to be better than other options before actual research was done 3) Bypass surgery may be on the rebound with this new info. Although I am far from a surgeon, I don't really believe that bypass surgeries will sharply rebound. If anything, more patients would probably choose to treat their blocked arteries through medication and lifestyle changes. But I guess if the prevention of a heart attack is the actual problem, some may now elect to have bypass surgery instead of a stent procedure. What do you all think?
