Background: Recent randomized controlled trials have shown that percutaneous coronary interventions (PCI) with stenting has similar mortality and myocardial infarction rates with coronary artery bypass surgery (CABG) in the management of multivessel disease. The overall cost on these revascularization strategies in our local setting is uncertain.

Materials and Methods: This is a retrospective, matched cohort study comparing the in-hospital clinical and economic outcomes of multivessel stenting  and bypass surgery. One hundred eighty (180) patients who underwent stenting of at least 2 major coronary arteries at our institution were included. The CABG group consisted of 108 patient who underwent bypass surgery matched for at least 2 of 3 characteristics, namely, age, sex, and presence of diabetes mellitus.

Results: There were no significant differences noted between the stent and CABG group f mortality rates (1.9 vs. 1.9%), development of MI (0.9% vs. 1.9%), and renal failure (3.7% vs. 3.7%). Patients in the CABG group had significantly longer total 12.4 vs. 6.8 days) and ICU (6.4 vs. 1.8 days lengths of stay than those in the PCI group (p<0.001). The calculated total hospital cost were significantly higher for the CABG group compared to the PCI group (P251, 746.00 vs. P240,657.29, <.001)

Conclusion: Multivessel stenting and CABG have comparable risks of n-hospital deaths and myocardial infarction. Multivessel stenting was significantly less costly compared to CABG and results to shorter hospital stay faster recovery and better quality life.
