Aim: To investigate and compare women's and men's expectations before investigation and treatment of suspected coronary artery disease and to examine how these expectations are met.

Do women and men, of different ages, have the same expectations for the evaluation and treatment of stable coronary artery disease and are their expectations met in a equal degree?

Are there differences in expectations and the fulfilment of these according to age and other clinical history variables? Do the findings in the specially developed questionnaire designed to gather patients' expectations to the outcome on quality of life and degree of angina pectoris relate to their appearance in the designated forms? Is there a relationship between NTproBNP - levels, as a measure of cardiac workload, and expectations and the fulfilment of these as well as the quality of life and degree of angina pectoris?

Method: Patients will be asked to participate in the study, in the context of medical consultation before coronary angiography by a physician and / or a study nurse. This occurs during an outpatient visit at the cardiac clinic at the respective centre. Included are all patients planned for elective coronary angiography before possible revascularization during a eight month period regardless of diagnosis. Including are four hospitals in the region of Västra Götaland.
