Revascularization refers to procedures that are performed to restore blood flow to the tissues.[16] Coronary artery bypass graft (CABG) and PCI are revascularization procedures performed in patients to address SIHD. These procedures may be performed either for symptomatic relief or to improve survival. The Heart Team approach (i.e., multi-disciplinary care) is recommended in patients with diabetes mellitus and complex multivessel disease. In this subset of patients, CABG is preferred to PCI to improve survival.[4]
