Abstract

Among patients being referred for coronary angiography in Sweden, 15% were patients with a history of diabetes. They differed from patients without such a history by more often having severe symptoms and a higher prevalence of left main/triple vessel disease. Coronary angiography may thus be underused in diabetic patients with chest pain.
