Abstract

Among patients undergoing percutaneous coronary revascularization, cigarette smoking remained associated with fewer lesions in the target artery even after adjusting for age, extent of coronary artery disease, diabetes mellitus, and hypertension. These findings support the hypothesis that smokers have less active, yet more active, coronary artery disease.
