Abstract [en]

Coronary angiography is in general regarded as a safe investigation with a low risk of serious complications, Unfortunately, a risk of serious complications exists, especially in patients with left main coronary artery disease or 3-vessel disease. The mortality rate ranges in different studies between 0.10% to 0.25%. The present series, reflecting nine gears experience, shows an overall mortality of 0.16%, This figure is influenced by the relatively high mortality: rate in the first year of the study, The recent mortality: rate of 0.07% has not changed in the last 3 years and almost all deaths occurred in the patients known to be at higher risk.
