Abstract

Recent guidelines emphasise the importance of cholesterol, blood pressure and diabetes control in the progression of coronary artery disease. In this study, the implementation of therapies to control such cardiovascular risk factors was assessed in patients with established coronary artery disease awaiting coronary artery bypass surgery. Some 15% of patients continued to smoke and a significant proportion of patients did not achieve target levels for total cholesterol, low density lipoprotein and blood pressure control. Amongst the diabetic patients, 88% demonstrated a HbA1C above 7%.
