Abstract

The treatment of patients with coronary artery disease (CAD) aims to reduce the risk of death, myocardial infarction, and ultimately to protect myocardial function, which is the major variable responsible for the prognosis of patients with CAD (1). Studies have clearly shown that patients with preserved ventricular function have a good prognosis irrespective of the number of diseased coronary vessels, but patients with systolic ventricular dysfunction have a poor prognosis, irrespective of the treatment applied (2).
