Rebutting conclusions of stent study

A provocative study and accompanying commentary published recently in The Lancet has drawn rebuttals from cardiologists.  “I think the conclusions drawn in the Lancet’s editorial are overstated,” said Dr. Larry Dean, director of UW Medicine’s Regional Heart Center and past president of the international Society for Cardiovascular Angiography and Interventions. “The notion that a 200-person study with a subjective endpoint might change patient-care guidelines is overstating the importance of the study.”
