This review assessed differences in quality-of-life (QoL) measures between people who had, or did not have revascularisation procedures following coronary stenting. The authors concluded that there was a QoL benefit in avoiding revascularisation, but also recommended further research. However, since relevant studies might have been missed and it is difficult to assess the reliability of the results, caution is advised.
