In this short video, Dr David E Kandzari (Piedmont Heart Institute, Atlanta, GA, US) discusses the easy outcomes from the OPTIMUM registry. The registry is a minimal risk observational study that uses a prospective cohort design to follow patients who have multivessel or left main coronary artery disease (CAD) and are deemed ineligible for coronary artery bypass surgery. The findings, presented first at TCT 21,  underscore the potential of revascularization to improve patients’ health status if it can be performed safely, even if surgery is not an option.
