Abstract

The STICH trial showed that CABG surgery does not necessarily improve cardiovascular outcomes in patients with coronary artery disease and left ventricular dysfunction who are receiving optimal medical therapy. However, surgical revascularization should still be considered if the coronary artery disease is severe and viable myocardium can be identified.
