In some cases, we are not doing PCI in the right patients

“The real question is: who should get percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI)? I do not believe that we are doing too many PCIs but in some cases, we are not doing PCI in the right patient,” says Gregg Stone (New York, USA). In this interview with Cardiovascular News, filmed at the VEITHsymposium 2018, he shares his views on ORBITA and how, hopefully, we will get to the “sweet spot” of choosing the right approach (optimal medical therapy or PCI) for the right patient with stable disease.
