Cardiac Events in Patients Stratified by Baseline Creatinine Clearance

EventsCrClp Value
<60 ml/min/1.73 m2(n = 77)≥60 ml/min/1.73 m2(n = 192)
Total events (%)19 (25)25 (13)0.019*

CABG = coronary artery bypass graft surgery; CrCl = creatinine clearance; MI = myocardial infarction; PCI = percutaneous coronary intervention.
