5-Year Survival for PET-Guided Maximal Medical Management
Cumulative events over 5-year follow-up after PET-guided management with maximal intense combined lifestyle–pharmacologic treatment compared with moderate standard lipid drug treatment and casual (poor) community practice as a nonrandomized pilot trial in 409 patients with coronary atherosclerosis. Any event includes death, nonfatal myocardial infarction, coronary bypass surgery, PCI, or stroke. Adapted, with permission, from Sdringola et al. (34). CABG = coronary artery bypass graft; HDL = high-density lipoprotein; LDL = low-density lipoprotein; MI = myocardial infarction; PTCA = percutaneous transluminal coronary angioplasty; TC = total cholesterol; TG = triglyceride; other abbreviations as in Figures 1 and 6.
