Minimally Invasive Coronary Bypass Grafting vs Percutaneous Coronary Interventions
At present, percutaneous coronary intervention procedures as well as minimally invasive coronary artery bypass grafting (MICABG) surgery are procedures in evolution. This chapter examines the rationale, indications, and results of both approaches for the treatment of single-vessel coronary artery disease (CAD), as well as the role of MICABG in patients with multivessel CAD.
