User:Hyoib I guess there are two question 1) do they need to be given before PCI which appears to be no and 2) do they need to be given for 12 months which the EU guideline recommends yes. Adjusted text to reflect both Doc James (talk · contribs · email) 14:19, 30 April 2015 (UTC)
The NY Times article states: "From 2003 to 2013, the death rate from coronary heart disease fell about 38 percent" but I could not find the source. The CDC tables linked in the NY Times article are only the 2013 statistics
I did find: "From 2001 to 2011, the death rate from heart disease has fallen about 39 percent." source: American Heart Association Heart Disease and Stroke Statistics – At-a-Glance https://www.heart.org/idc/groups/ahamah-public/@wcm/@sop/@smd/documents/downloadable/ucm_470704.pdf "The source for the health statistics is the association’s 2015 Heart Disease and Stroke Statistics Update, which is compiled annually by the American Heart Association, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, the National Institutes of Health and other government sources."
