Since the introduction of coronary balloon angioplasty by Gruentzig in 1977, significant evolution has occurred in both catheter-based percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) as well as adjunctive pharmacotherapies.

Does Preventive PCI Work?
2007 г.
Judith S. Hochman, M.D., and P. Gabriel Steg, M.D.
Treatments are designed to make people feel better or live longer. Percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) is effective at reducing angina in patients with symptomatic coronary artery disease and at reducing mortality in patients who have acute myocardial infarction with ST-segment elevation and in those who have high-risk acute coronary syndromes without ST-segment elevation.

During the past 30 years, the use of percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) has become common in the initial management strategy for patients with stable coronary artery disease in North America, even though treatment guidelines advocate an initial approach with intensive medical therapy, a reduction of risk factors, and lifestyle intervention (known as optimal medical therapy).

Cardiovascular disease is a leading cause of morbidity and mortality in older people, and increasingly, elderly patients are referred for revascularization.
