JAMA – Nonobstructive Coronary Artery Disease and Risk of Myocardial Infarction

JAMA Network | JAMA | Nonobstructive Coronary Artery Disease and Risk of Myocardial Infarction.

Conclusions and Relevance  In this cohort of patients undergoing elective coronary angiography, nonobstructive CAD, compared with no apparent CAD, was associated with a significantly greater 1-year risk of MI and all-cause mortality. These findings suggest clinical importance of nonobstructive CAD and warrant further investigation of interventions to improve outcomes among these patients.
