|Adjusted for||Hazard Ratio for CRP >1.0 mg/dl||95% CI||p Value||n|
|# of moderate lesions||2.1||1.5–3.1||0.0001|
|# of moderate vessels||2.0||1.4–3.0||0.0002|
|# of severe lesions||2.0||1.4–2.9||0.0002|

CAD = coronary artery disease; CI = confidence interval; CRP = C-reactive protein.
↵* Severe lesion is defined as ≥70% stenosis; moderate lesion is defined as 10%–60% stenosis; severe vessel is a coronary artery with at least one severe lesion (maximum 3); moderate vessel is a coronary artery with at least one moderate lesion (maximum 3).
↵† Score defined as the # of total lesions plus # of severe and moderate vessels (range 0–28).
↵‡ Traditional risk factors include age, gender, hypertension, diabetes, hyperlipidemia, family history, smoking history and treatment modality after angiography (medical, angioplasty or surgery).
