In school, was so confused and always switched my majors around. It kind of grew from there.
Kopecky, MD Ridker and colleagues 34 measured the plasma CRP level in 543 apparently healthy men in whom AMI or stroke developed during an 8-year period and compared findings to those in 543 persons who experienced neither event in the same period.
The mean CRP was 1. Ridker et al 35 also measured CRP in 27,939 apparently healthy American women and monitored them for a mean of 8 years for occurrence of AMI, ischemic stroke, coronary revascularization, or cardiovascular death.
After various adjustments, the relative risk of a first cardiovascular event according to increasing quintiles of CRP level, as compared to the lowest quintile, were 1.
They concluded that the higher the level of CRP in these patients, the worse the prognosis. Several studies have shown that CABG provides better long-term outcome than PCI in patients with severe narrowing of all 3 major coronary arteries, in those in whom the left main coronary artery is severely narrowed, and in those with subnormal left ventricular function.
The 5-year survival rates were 89. The respective 5-year survival rates free from Q-wave AMI were 80.
The diabetic patients being treated with insulin or oral hypoglycemic agents at baseline had a 5-year survival rate of 80. Thus, an initial strategy of percutaneous transluminal coronary angioplasty did not significantly compromise 5-year survival in patients with multivessel CAD, although subsequent revascularization was required more often with this strategy.
Serruys and colleagues 38 compared CABG with coronary stenting in 1205 patients with multivessel CAD and found no significant differences between the 2 groups in terms of the rates of death, stroke, or AMI 1 year after treatment.
Among patients who survived without a stroke or an AMI, 16.
