OBJECTIVE To investigate whether revascularisation improves prognosis compared with medical treatment among patients with stable coronary artery disease. DESIGN Bayesian network meta-analyses to combine direct within trial comparisons between treatments with indirect evidence from other trials while maintaining randomisation.

BACKGROUND Female patients with acute myocardial infarction (MI) exhibit higher unadjusted in-hospital mortality rates compared to male patients. However, contradictory evidence exists on whether this survival disadvantage disappears after adjustment for age and other prognostic factors. This study, based on a countrywide survey of consecutive unselected(More)
BACKGROUND AND AIMS Several studies have observed a hypocholesterolemic effect of plant sterols in hypercholesterolemic patients on a balanced diet. The aim of this study was to examine the effect of phytosterol supplementation on risk factors of coronary artery disease in metabolic syndrome patients on a Westernized type diet. METHODS AND RESULTS In a(More)
The insertion/deletion (I/D) polymorphism in the ACE gene and the A1166C polymorphism in the AT1R gene have been associated with left ventricular remodelling and prognosis after acute myocardial infarction (AMI). We investigated whether these genetic variants associate with impaired left ventricular ejection fraction (LVEF) and increased risk for(More)
BACKGROUND The insertion/deletion polymorphism of the angiotensin-converting enzyme (ACE) and the A1166C polymorphism of the angiotensin-II AT1 receptor (AT1R) have been extensively investigated as possible risk factors for myocardial infarction (MI). DESIGN AND METHODS Genetic association, case-control study, specifically designed to investigate the(More)
