Continuous variables are expressed as the mean±SE or median (IQR) with statistical comparisons between patients with ACS and suspected stable angina performed using the Student t test or Mann–Whitney, where appropriate. Categorical variables are expressed as the absolute number of cases and the group proportion (%) with statistical comparisons performed using a χ^{2} test.
ARB, angiotensin receptor blocker; CABG, coronary artery bypass; CAD, coronary artery disease; LVSD, left ventricular systolic dysfunction; MI, myocardial infarction; PCI, percutaneous coronary intervention; PVD, peripheral vascular disease.
