abstract

  • In individuals being assessed for CAD with no modifiable risk factors, all-cause mortality in the long term (>5¬†years) was predicted by the presence of more than 1 segment of non-obstructive plaque, obstructive 1- or 2-vessel CAD and 3 vessel/left main CAD. Any CAD, whether non-obstructive or obstructive, predicted MACE over the same time period.
