Exercise Better Than Angioplasty

This study randomized 101 men (70 yr old or younger) with stable coronary artery disease to PCI or an exercise program. Those in the exercise program did better. "Compared with PCI, a 12-month program of regular physical exercise in selected patients with stable coronary artery disease resulted in superior event-free survival and exercise capacity at lower costs, notably owing to reduced rehospitalizations and repeat revascularizations."

Percutaneous coronary angioplasty compared with exercise training in patients with stable coronary artery disease: a randomized trial.
