  • OBJECTIVES The study was done to assess patients in the Post-Coronary Artery Bypass Graft (Post-CABG) trial to determine prognostic factors for atherosclerosis progression. BACKGROUND Saphenous vein grafts (SVGs) are effective in relieving angina and, in certain patient subsets, in prolonging life. However, the progression of atherosclerosis in many of these grafts limits their usefulness. METHODS The Post-CABG trial studied moderate versus aggressive lipid-lowering and low-dose warfarin… CONTINUE READING
