Limited data are available regarding the long-term clinical outcomes of percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) using second-generation drug-eluting stents (DESs) versus coronary artery bypass grafting (CABG) for the treatment of coronary artery disease (CAD) with chronic total occlusion (CTO). We compared the clinical outcomes of patients with multivessel CAD including CTO lesions treated with PCI using DESs versus CABG.
