In medicine, myocardial revascularization is "the restoration of blood supply to the myocardium."[1]

Revascularization procedures include:

In general, surgery is more effective[5], especially for severe disease[6]. The SYNTAX score may help determine choice of procedure for myocardial revascularization.[7]
