Causes of Deaths in the SYNTAX Randomized Cohort: PCI and CABG Comparison
After percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI), the leading cause of cardiovascular death was myocardial infarction (MI)-related death. After coronary artery bypass grafting (CABG), the leading cause of cardiovascular death was congestive heart failure (CHF), arrhythmia, or other causes (e.g., arrhythmia and all other cardiac deaths).
