In a nutshell: Doctors K S Rathod, S Siddiqi, S Baron et al report on an observational study over a 9 month period, of 100 patients with pre-existing CHD, who were admitted to Whipps Cross University Hospital with a further acute coronary event. Suboptimal secondary prevention drug therapies and inadequate control of cholesterol, blood pressure and heart rate were found in a large proportion of these patients upon their re-admission.
