Clinical and Angiographic Outcomes Associated with Surgical Revascularization of Angiographically Borderline 50-69% Coronary Artery StenosesDownload
Objectives: Coronary artery bypass grafting improves outcomes in patients with multi-vessel coronary artery disease. Bypass of angiographically significant lesions ≥70% is recommended, yet little is known about the incidence/outcomes with bypasses of 50-69% angiographically borderline lesions...
Coronary artery disease (CAD) is the leading cause of mortality in developed countries, followed by depression. Recent literature supports a bidirectional relationship between depression and CAD, which adversely affects the quality of life. Although there is a high prevalence of co-occurring CAD...
Smoking status and survival: impact on mortality of continuing to smoke one year after the angiographic diagnosis of coronary artery disease, a prospective cohort studyDownload
Background: Smoking is an undertreated risk factor for coronary artery disease (CAD) and is associated with adverse outcomes after myocardial infarction. Aims of our study were to determine if management of CAD by medical therapy (MT) alone or with coronary artery bypass grafting (CABG) or...
The association between renal insufficiency, phamacotherapy, and outcomes in 6427 patients with heart failure and coronary artery disease.Download
Objectives This study was designed to examine the use of cardiovascular medications and outcomes in patients with heart failure (HF) and renal dysfunction. Background Renal insufficiency is associated with poorer outcomes in patients with HF, but the mechanisms are uncertain. In particular,...
