The influence of continued cigarette smoking on restenosis after percutaneous transluminal coronary angioplasty (PTCA) was retrospectively determined through a study of 160 patients with primary success who underwent follow-up angiography after a mean of 7 +/- 7 months. The average number of narrowings at risk for restenosis was 1.7/patient in the 84 patients who continued to smoke (group 1) and 1.9/patient in the 76 patients who stopped smoking at the time of PTCA (group 2) (difference not… CONTINUE READING
