OBJECTIVE Renal dysfunction has been shown to be linked to high risk for cardiovascular events. Even milder forms of creatinine elevation are associated with poor cardiovascular outcomes. We designed a retrospective study and searched the association of angiographic extent of coronary artery disease and creatinine levels in patients without overt renal dysfunction. METHODS We retrospectively reviewed 892 consecutive patients with typical stable angina pectoris (311 female with mean age of 62… CONTINUE READING
