Updated Classification System Captures Many More People at Risk for Heart Attack - 2017 from Johns Hopkins Medicine Full text

But based on data from a 2012 study by researchers in Denmark that looked at survival rates in 4,711 women and 6,512 men after analyzing the severity of blocked arteries through coronary angiography, the Johns Hopkins and Mount Sinai specialists say there is evidence that people with less than 50 percent blockage of their heart’s arteries, with so-called nonobstructive heart disease, are at just about the same risk of death due to heart attack, stroke or heart failure (congestive heart disease) — about 14 percent over five years for men and 8 percent for women — as people with an artery with a 50 percent or greater blockage.
