William B. Borden i wsp – Patterns and Intensity of Medical Therapy in Patients Undergoing Percutaneous Coronary Intervention JAMA 2011;305:1882

Conclusion: Among patients with stable CAD undergoing PCI, less than half were receiving OMT (Optimal Medical Treatment) before PCI and approximately two-thirds were receiving OMT at discharge following PCI, with relatively little change in these practice patterns after publication of the COURAGE trial.
