Outcomes for CAD patients improved by complete revascularization

[Medical News Today, April 24, 2010] A 3-year, retrospective study determined that 28.8% of patients with significant coronary artery disease (CAD) who did not undergo complete revascularization had a higher mortality rate than patients completely revascularized.

The research team led by Timothy Henry, MD, reviewed angiographs and clinical data from 493 patients treated at the Minneapolis Heart Institute at Allina's Abbott Northwestern Hospital in Minneapolis, between July 2005 and August 2005.
