Forty-one angina patients with coronary disease were interviewed to examine the correlation between prespecified and individualized weights for disease-specific measures of the effects of angina on the patients' well-being. Modifications of the Canadian Cardiovascular Society (CCS) scale for angina and the Duke Activity Specific Index (DASI) were used to rate functional capacity with prespecified items. Disease-specific utilities based on descriptions of functional status were obtained directly… CONTINUE READING
