Abstract: The practice of percutaneous coronary intervention has overtaken coronary bypass surgery in the treatment of ischaemic heart disease. Several randomized controlled as well as registry and observational trials have addressed the issue of patient selection and outcomes in order to provide the cardiologist with data enabling optimal treatment selection. This article reviews the major trials performed over the past 25 years, underscoring their strengths and limitations and draws on lessons and guidelines that are relevant to our local practice.
