Abstract

We studied the history of hypertensive pregnancies and conventional risk factors in 141 relatively young (<66 years) parous women with angiographically documented coronary artery disease and in age-matched controls. Our study showed that hypertension, diabetes, hypercholesterolemia, advanced age, smoking, and preeclampsia are independent risk factors for subsequent coronary artery disease.
