The purpose of this study is to, in patients with stable angina pectoris, assess the additional benefit of PCI on top of optimized medical treatment, physical training and smoking cessation with regard to quality of life, achievement of target of treatment and clinical events such as death, acute myocardial infarction, stroke and revascularization.
Patients with stable angina pectoris with a significant coronary stenosis will be randomized to optimized medical treatment, physical training and smoking cessation or to optimized medical treatment, physical training, smoking cessation and complimentary treatment with PCI. All patients will be followed up at six months and at one and five years regarding symptoms, blood lipids, systemic blood pressure, physical training status, smoking habits, and maximal exercise ECG.
Achievement of target of treatment will be measured by questions regarding the patients' expectation of the treatment at baseline and at a 6 month follow-up. The questions at 6 months will be based on the interviews at inclusion. Furthermore quality of life will be measured with three different measuring instrument; SF-36 short form, Seattle Angina Questionnaire (SAQ), and EQ-5D. These instruments will be given to the patients at baseline, at six months and at the five year follow up.

To compare the efficacy of coronary artery bypass graft (CABG) surgery with percutaneous transluminal coronary angioplasty (PTCA) in patients with multiple vessel coronary heart disease.
To assess the relative long-term safety and efficacy of percutaneous transluminal coronary angioplasty (PTCA) and coronary artery bypass graft (CABG) surgery in patients with multivessel d...
The purpose of this study is to compare coronary angioplasty with stent implantation with an exercise rehabilitation program in patients with stable coronary artery disease (CAD).
The purpose of this study is to determine whether percutaneous coronary angioplasty with Taxus drug eluting stent is safe and effective in the treatment of unprotected left main coronary a...
To determine the safety and feasibility of same day discharge after elective coronary percutaneous intervention in a selected stable patient population. The hypothesis to be tested is tha...
Percutaneous coronary intervention is the most common therapeutic intervention for patients with narrowed coronary arteries due to coronary artery disease. Although it is known that patients with coro...
Chronic kidney disease (CKD) is associated with a worse prognosis in patients with stable coronary artery disease (CAD); however, there is limited randomized data on long-term outcomes of CAD therapie...
Our goal was to evaluate the outcomes of the first patients treated by venous coronary artery bypass grafting (CABG) or percutaneous coronary interventions (PCIs) with balloon angioplasty at a single ...
Considerations for the choice between coronary artery bypass grafting and percutaneous coronary intervention as revascularization strategies in major categories of patients with stable multivessel coronary artery disease: an accompanying article of the task force of the 2018 ESC/EACTS guidelines on myocardial revascularization.
Infected coronary artery aneurysms (ICAA) represent a rare but potentially fatal complication of pre-existent atherosclerotic or non-atherosclerotic coronary artery disease, percutaneous coronary arte...
A family of percutaneous techniques that are used to manage CORONARY OCCLUSION, including standard balloon angioplasty (PERCUTANEOUS TRANSLUMINAL CORONARY ANGIOPLASTY), the placement of intracoronary STENTS, and atheroablative technologies (e.g., ATHERECTOMY; ENDARTERECTOMY; THROMBECTOMY; PERCUTANEOUS TRANSLUMINAL LASER ANGIOPLASTY). PTCA was the dominant form of PCI, before the widespread use of stenting.
Use of a balloon catheter for dilatation of an occluded artery. It is used in treatment of arterial occlusive diseases, including renal artery stenosis and arterial occlusions in the leg. For the specific technique of balloon dilatation in coronary arteries, ANGIOPLASTY, TRANSLUMINAL, PERCUTANEOUS CORONARY is available.
Dilatation of an occluded coronary artery (or arteries) by means of a balloon catheter to restore myocardial blood supply.
Surgical therapy of ischemic coronary artery disease achieved by grafting a section of saphenous vein, internal mammary artery, or other substitute between the aorta and the obstructed coronary artery distal to the obstructive lesion.
Direct myocardial revascularization in which the internal mammary artery is anastomosed to the right coronary artery, circumflex artery, or anterior descending coronary artery. The internal mammary artery is the most frequent choice, especially for a single graft, for coronary artery bypass surgery.
