Conclusions

The STICH trial definitively shows adding SVR to CABG provides no clinical benefit beyond that of CABG alone in the study population.

Both operative strategies provided similar short- and long-term relief of angina and HF and improvement in 6-minute walk test performance.

SVR added to CABG decreased LV size significantly more than CABG alone and confirms the anatomic change reported in prior SVR studies.

Further analyses of STICH Hypothesis 2 data may identify patient characteristics associated with benefit or harm from adding SVR to CABG.
