Patient type Revascularisation choice Benefit ST elevation myocardial infarction (STEMI) Immediate (primary) PCI or thrombolysis (if 90–120 min delay for PCI) Decreased early and late mortality Non-ST elevation myocardial infarction (NSTEMI) Angiography and PCI within 72 h, or immediately if high risk features (arrhythmia, ongoing pain) Decreased recurrent MI and readmission to hospital Chronic stable angina (one or two-vessel disease) Optimal medical therapy ± PCI ± CABG No mortality benefit but improved symptoms following PCI and CABG Chronic stable angina (left mainstem or three-vessel disease) Optimal medical therapy ± PCI ± CABG CABG is superior to PCI in most patients with a mortality benefit.
