OBJECTIVES The MESA (Multi-Ethnic Study of Atherosclerosis) is a population-based study of 6,814 men and women. We sought to analyze the relationship between the extent of coronary artery calcium (CAC) at baseline and the severity of coronary stenoses in clinically indicated coronary angiography studies during follow-up. BACKGROUND CAC is an established predictor of major cardiovascular events. Yet, the relationship between CAC and the distribution and severity of coronary artery stenoses has… CONTINUE READING
