BACKGROUND Early after coronary artery bypass surgery (CABG), activation of numerous neurohumoral and endogenous vasodilator systems occurs that could be influenced favorably by angiotensin-converting enzyme inhibitors. METHODS AND RESULTS The Ischemia Management with Accupril post-bypass Graft via Inhibition of the coNverting Enzyme (IMAGINE) trial tested whether early initiation (< or = 7 days) of an angiotensin-converting enzyme inhibitor after CABG reduced cardiovascular events in stable… CONTINUE READING
