      Abstract

      Twenty-nine patients died among the first 3,079 patients enrolled in the NHLBI PTCA Registry. The overall morality rate was 0.9%; the mortality rate was 0.8% in patients with 1-vessel CAD, 1.0% in those with multivessel CAD (excluding left main CAD), and 3.8% in those with left main CAD (p < 0.01). The in-hospital morality rate was significantly higher among women (p < 0.01), in patients older than 60 years, in patients with previous CABG (p < 0.01), the presence of left main CAD, (p < 0.01), in patients who required dilatation of a vein graft stenosis (p < 0.05), and in patients who had had angina for longer than 6 months (p < 0.01).
