This study was designed to evaluate more closely the the in-hospital costs of elective revascularization by directional coronary atherectomy and intracoronary stenting and to compare these costs with those of the traditional revascularization alternatives (i.e., conventional balloon angioplasty and coronary artery bypass surgery).
Previous studies have suggested that total hospital charges for directional coronary atherectomy or intracoronary stenting are significantly higher than those for conventional angioplasty.
However, hospital charges do not necessarily reflect true economic costs, and their use may provide misleading data with regard to cost-effectiveness.
