Data on 1,900 patients with diabetes and multivessel coronary artery disease showed those who underwent coronary artery bypass grafting had lower rates of all-cause mortality, nonfatal myocardial infarction or nonfatal stroke at five years compared with those who had percutaneous coronary intervention with a drug-eluting stent. Lower rates of cardiovascular and cerebrovascular events were also seen in the CABG group, researchers said. The results were presented at the American Heart Association meeting.
