After ORBITA 2, what is the role of PCI in the management of angina and coronary disease patients?

Emanuele Barbato interviews Rasha Al-Lamee, the principal investigator of the ORBITA 2 trial, about the current role of percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI). Unlike ORBITA 1, ORBITA 2 focused on the effects of angioplasty as a monotherapy, without prior anti-angina treatment.
The results showed that angioplasty improved symptoms significantly, making patients more likely to be free from angina and anti-angina medication.
The study found that PCI benefits patients with significant coronary artery disease and typical angina symptoms, but is less effective for those with atypical symptoms.
