  Purpose
The purpose of this study is to prospectivly analyze the correlation of triglyceride tolerance and glucose tolerance with cardiovascular morbidity and mortality in patients with stable coronary artery disease within 18 months and to determine, whether measurement of triglyceride tolerance can discriminate patients at risk for cardiovascular events.

Condition
Coronary Artery Disease Diabetes Metabolic Syndrome Glucose Tolerance Hyperlipidemia

Study Type: Observational
Study Design: Observational Model: Cohort
Time Perspective: Prospective
Official Title: Prospective Investigation of the Influence of Triglyceride Tolerance on Cardiovascular Outcomes in Patients With Coronary Artery Disease
