          Abstract

          The number of coronary arteriographies (CAG) has increased tremendously all over the industrialised world over the past years. Even though the potential benefit is high in patients with angina pectoris, for example, with expected life prolongation in case of three-vessel disease or left main stenosis with subsequent coronary artery bypass grafting (CABG), the indication for treatment is not as dramatic in all patients and at the same time CAG is a procedure with at least, some risk, and costs are not negligible. It is therefore pertinent, and hence also the purpose of the present analysis, to make observations on indications, clinical and angiographic findings and their combinations which could be helpful in clinical practice/decision-making. Furthermore, the purpose was to analyse the consequences of CAG with respect to revascularisations such as percutaneous transluminal coronary angioplasty (PTCA) or CABG.
