STICH trial was performed to compare results of coronary artery bypass grafting (CABG) with results of LV reconstruction in combination with CABG in patients with CAD complicated with LV dysfunction. Publication of these results led to intense debates. Review of questions to the authors and answers are presented in this article. The article is illustrated with two clinical examples.
