Patients with complex CAD and complex physiology (such as renal disease, diabetes, and reduced LV function) may have higher surgical risk;  experience higher rates of periprocedural adverse events; and higher rates of mortality but careful assessment of risk-benefit can resolve the risk-treatment paradox and result in the achievement of excellent patient outcomes.  
Join Drs. Ali, Maran, Riley and Truesdell for an in-depth discussion about how to treat these patient groups.
