“Patients do not want operations” - No one wants any operation - Patient’s decision on CABG depends who presents information and its balanceno patient wants ‘cracking the chest’ if the same effect can be achieved with PCI - But most patients want the best treatment and many will accept an operation if it increases survival by 5% (or reduces risk of mortality by 1/3) within 3-5 years and allows them to get on with life without repeat interventions and the worry of ‘failed stents’.
