Table 2

The distribution and severity of vessel disease detected by coronary angiography in the infarct and non-infarct patient groups

Vessel diseaseInfarct group (n=88)*Non-infarct group (n=168)
Values are n (%).
The difference in the degree of vessel disease between the infarct and non-infarct groups was highly significant (p<0.001).
*There were two subjects in the infarct group for whom the degree of vessel disease was unavailable.
0, normal coronaries; X, irregularities on angiogram; 1, 2, and 3 = number of diseased vessels.
