Abstract

Aortocoronary bypass surgery using saphenous vein grafts for the treatment of ischemic heart disease was first proposed in the late 1960s, and was becoming widely accepted by 1970 as an effective procedure for the relief of angina pectoris. At that point it appeared highly desirable to initiate a prospective, randomized study to critically evaluate the influence of bypass surgery compared to medical management in patients with chronic stable angina. This is a report of preliminary findings in a prospective study begun four and one-half years ago, with 95 patients randomly allocated to medical or surgical therapy at this time.
