The PCI Choice Trial: a Pilot Randomized Trial of a Decision Aid for Patients With Stable Coronary Artery Disease

This study has been completed.

Despite several large clinical trials clearly establishing that coronary revascularization (i.e. percutaneous coronary intervention - PCI) does not prolong survival or prevent myocardial infarction (MI) for stable coronary artery disease (CAD), patients with stable angina continue to believe that PCI is performed to improve these outcomes. Additionally, recent concerns have emerged of overuse of PCI among patients with little or no angina. Thus there is a compelling need to share with patients the risks and benefits of PCI prior to treatment to reach an informed decision.

This study is designed to answer the question of whether a decision aid can improve patient knowledge, decisional conflict and patient satisfaction with decision-making compared to usual care for the treatment of stable angina.
