ABSTRACT
The aim of this study was to compare the efficacy of TMR versus medical management in cases of severe CAD not amenable to percutaneous transluminal coronary angioplasty [PTCA] or coronary artery bypass grafting [CABG]. Sixty-six patients with severe CAD were treated randomly, either by TMR or medical treatment. Accordingly, they were divided into two groups Group 1 included 26 patients who were treated medically, while group 2 included 40 patients who were treated by TMR. All patients were subjected to clinical assessment and stress-redistribution-reinjection [ST-KD-RI] Thallium SPECT protocol pre and post TMR [3, 6, 9 and 12 months]. The study concluded that TMR has been proved to be effective in the management of severe cases of CAD concerning the quality of life and survival. Transmyocardial revascularization is a treatment option for patients with medically refractory angina who are not candidates for conventional revascularization
