Patients with diabetes mellitus are at increased risk of developing coronary artery disease (CAD) and have an increased incidence of recurrent events following revascularization. Choosing the most appropriate strategy to revascularize these high-risk patients is crucial for improving the clinical outcomes. Several studies, randomized trials and meta-analyses have compared short- and long-term outcomes following coronary artery bypass grafting (CABG) and percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) in diabetic patients suffering from CAD. The aim of this article is to review the currently available evidence on the role of PCI and CABG in the management of diabetic patients with CAD.
