Abstract [en]

We describe the 2- and 5-year prognoses following coronary artery bypass grafting (CABG) in relation to smoking habits among consecutive patients being operated on in western Sweden during a 3-year period. Among the 2,121 patients, 10.2% admitted smoking at coronary angiography as compared with 7.5% 2 years after CABG (NS). Among smokers, the mortality during the subsequent 2 years was 8.9% as compared with 6.5% for exsmokers and 7.3% for never smokers (NS). During the 5-year follow-up, smokers had a mortality of 18.8% as compared with 13.6% for exsmokers and 12.5% for never smokers (p = 0.03). When correcting for dissimilarities in previous history, smoking was a strongly significant independent (p < 0.0001) predictor of 5-year mortality.
