    PCI for stable angina: A missed opportunity for shared decision-making.

    Cleve Clin J Med 2018 Feb;85(2):105-121
    Vice-Chair for Research, Medicine Institute, and Director, Center for Value-Based Care Research, Cleveland Clinic, Cleveland, OH, USA.
    Percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) continues to be frequently performed for patients with stable coronary artery disease, despite clear evidence that it provides minimal benefit over optimal medical therapy and entails small but not inconsequential risks. Many patients and doctors do not fully understand the risks and benefits of PCI, even when presented with the evidence, and this makes informed consent challenging. The best approach is shared decision-making, with doctor and patient together choosing the best treatment option after considering the evidence and the patient's preferences.

    Informed Decision Making for Percutaneous Coronary Intervention for Stable Coronary Disease.
    JAMA Intern Med 2015 Jul;175(7):1199-206
    Health Decision Sciences, Massachusetts General Hospital, Harvard Medical School, Boston.
    Importance: Patients with stable coronary disease undergoing percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) are frequently misinformed about the benefits of PCI. Little is known about the quality of decision making before angiography and possible PCI.

    Objective: To assess the quality of informed decision making and its association with patient decisions. Read More
    Is informed consent in cardiac surgery and percutaneous coronary intervention achievable?
    ANZ J Surg 2007 Jul;77(7):530-4
    Department of Cardiothoracic Surgery, The Alfred Hospital, Melbourne, Victoria, Australia.
    Background: Medical and legal published work regularly discusses informed consent and patient autonomy before medical interventions. Recent discussions have suggested that Cardiothoracic surgeons' risk adjusted mortality data should be published to facilitate the informed consent process. However, as to which aspects of medicine, procedures and the associated risks patients understand is unknown. Read More
    Shared decision making in patients with stable coronary artery disease: PCI choice.
    PLoS One 2012 30;7(11):e49827. Epub 2012 Nov 30.
    Division of Cardiovascular Diseases, Department of Medicine, Mayo Clinic, Rochester, MN, USA.
    Background: Percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) and optimal medical therapy (OMT) are comparable, alternative therapies for many patients with stable angina; however, patients may have misconceptions regarding the impact of PCI on risk of death and myocardial infarction (MI) in stable coronary artery disease (CAD).

    Methods And Results: We designed and developed a patient-centered decision aid (PCI Choice) to promote shared decision making for patients with stable CAD. The estimated benefits and risks of PCI+OMT as compared to OMT were displayed in a decision aid using pictographs with natural frequencies and text. Read More
    A targeted approach to reducing overutilization: use of percutaneous coronary intervention in stable coronary artery disease.
    Popul Health Manag 2013 Jun 31;16(3):164-8. Epub 2012 Oct 31.
    OptumHealth Care Solutions, Fort Myers, FL 33967, USA.
    Overutilization, defined as use of unnecessary care when alternatives may produce similar outcomes, results in higher cost without increased value. Overutilization can be understood by focusing on settings where overuse is obvious. One example is percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) in chronic stable angina. Read More
