Abstract: The Australian and New Zealand Society of Cardiac and Thoracic Surgeons (ANZSCTS) does not accept the CSANZ draft Position Statement published in this edition as Discussion Paper: Proposed Recommendation for Myocardial Revascularisation. Earlier this year, ANZSCTS chose to adopt the 2010 ESC/EACTS Guidelines on Myocardial Revascularisation for the following reasons: first, these guidelines represented the most up-to-date and complete appraisal of the literature in light of the SYNTAX trial, and other studies performed with the newer generation stents and CABG techniques; second, they included a proportionate number of cardiologists and surgeons and therefore may be considered to be non-partisan; third, the European Guidelines introduced the concept of ‘the Heart Team’ which reflected the importance of multidisciplinary decision-making in patients with stable, complex coronary disease.
