 The paper compares the major unwanted coronary events in patients with surgical revascularization of myocardium and with percutaneous transluminal coronary angioplasty during the period of 36 months. The frequency of major unwanted coronary events, above all mortality, was higher in group of patients with surgical revascularization of myocardium, but the difference was not statistically significant.
