Interestingly, number of CABG performed has decreased compared to Angioplasties over past few years. The drop in CABG surgery rates was observed across sex, age, racial and regional subgroups.  The reason for this is not one particular factor.

“There has been a substantial decline in CABG surgery during the past decade without a commensurate decline in PCI, suggesting the likelihood that a coronary artery disease patient receives PCI versus CABG has markedly changed” This was the observation of one of the studies carried out in USA.

CABG surgery remains the better choice for patients with previously untreated three-vessel or left main coronary artery disease. With use of DES, even PCI will subsequently decrease.
