abstract

  • In a large prospective coronary CTA cohort followed long-term, we did not observe an interaction of sex for the association between MACE risk and increased per-vessel extent of obstructive CAD. These findings highlight the persistent prognostic significance of anatomic CAD subsets as detected by coronary CTA for the risk of MACE in both women and men.
