Abstract

Patients with diabetes mellitus are at an increased risk of developing coronary artery disease (CAD) and have an increased incidence of recurrent events following revascularisation. Choosing the most appropriate strategy to revascularize these high-risk patients is crucial to improve clinical outcomes. Several studies, randomised trials and meta-analysis, have compared the short and long-term outcomes following coronary artery bypass grafting (CABG) and percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) in diabetic patients suffering from CAD. The aim of this article is to review the currently available evidence on the role of PCI and CABG in the management of diabetic patients with CAD.
