An article on the front page of The New York Times reports on a new study that showed that many patients routinely implanted with stents to open arteries gain no lasting benefit compared with those treated with just drugs and quotes William E. Boden, professor of medicine and public health and lead author on a report on the study. "When I saw the results, I was incredulous," he said. "There will be a lot of analysis and dissection of the study. But that doesn't mean necessarily mean we will do far fewer angioplasties." Go to article.
