Interesting article from Monday's Boston Globe:
Patients with clogged arteries who have not yet had a heart attack benefit just as much from medications as angioplasty, according to a study released today.
Half of the patients took medication and underwent angioplasty, a procedure...The other half received only medication...After tracking the patients for an average of four-and-a-half years, in a trial nicknamed COURAGE, the team, including some scientists from Connecticut, found that there was no difference in outcomes between the groups.
