This transfer grant provides support to continue the Phase II study of the economic, functional, and quality-of-life outcomes of patients undergoing one of two alternative treatments for coronary artery disease: coronary angioplasty versus coronary artery bypass surgery. This study is a supplement to the BARI Trial, a multi-site, randomized clinical trial mounted by the National Heart, Lung, and Blood Institute to compare the medical outcomes of the two procedures. The Phase II objectives are to: (1) complete baseline data collection on 1,000 patients; (2) administer follow-up questionnaires on the patients three months, one year, and two years after treatment; (3) collect hospital cost data for all patients over the two-year period; and (4) compile and analyze the study data. The study is being conducted in seven clinical centers around the U.S., with the development of study materials and procedures, interviewer training, database assembly, and overall study management centered at Stanford University.
