The mean SAQ scores are risk adjusted for sex, age, renal insufficiency, hypertension, hyperlipidemia, diabetes mellitus, peripheral vascular disease, cerebrovascular disease, pulmonary disease, liver/gastrointestinal disease, malignancy, congestive heart failure, prior myocardial infarction, prior thrombolytic therapy, coronary anatomy, extent of coronary stenosis, and left ventricular ejection fraction.
