To the Editor We read with interest the article by Stergiopoulos et al,1 who conclude that in patients with stable coronary artery disease and objectively documented ischemia, percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) was not associated with a reduction in clinical end points compared with medical therapy (MT) alone. While interesting, this meta-analysis might be flawed in several ways.
