Dr Malik in the ORBITA study

Twitter was very active with this 200 patient study that Dr Malik was involved with.
He said:
It should make you think: why is a stent being put in?
  • In stable angina, it is for symptom control. Tablets might work just as well.
  • In unstable angina or a heart attack it is to save a life.
The ORBITA study was in stable angina with only one diseased blood vessel.
If in doubt, you need to discuss with your cardiologist.
