In a commentary by Knudtson [CABG led to less angina, reintervention, and medication than did PTCA, but mortality did not differ (1) and Review: CABG leads to less angina and less reintervention than PTCA, but mortality and subsequent MI are the same (2)], the last sentence of the penultimate paragraph should read as follows: Because stenting was not used in CABRI and other trials referred to in the subject meta-analysis, there is reason to believe that the large repeated-procedure differential noted is greater than that reported in the current “stent era.”
