Some 426 patients were randomized; 68 (31.5 per cent) of those who had coronary angiography had a coronary stenosis, 66 underwent angioplasty and two had coronary bypass grafting with their endarterectomy. Survival rates at six years were 95.6 per cent in the treatment and 89.7 per cent in the control group (P=0.01), due to fewer myocardial infarctions (1.4 versus 15.7 per cent, P<0.001).Pubmed Link
