Should we still have the COURAGE to perform elective PCI in stable myocardial ISCHEMIA?

Telal Mudawi, Darar Al-Khdair, Muath Al-Anbaei, Asmaa Ali, Ahmed Amin, Dalia Besada, Waleed Alenezi

Abstract

The evidence COURAGE This study compared PCI plus optimal medical therapy with optimal medical therapy alone. There were 2,287 patients enrolled: 1,149 patients were equally randomised to receive PCI or medical therapy, testing all-cause mortality and myocardial infarction (MI) over a median of 4.6 years. The cumulative primary-event rates were not significantly different between the two groups (p=0.62). The same was the case for the composite of death, MI, and stroke (p=0.62); acute coronary syndrome (ACS) hospitalisation (p=0.56), or MI (p=0.33). The trial concluded that elective PCI confers no prognostic benefit over medical therapy alone.
