Computer analysis of femoral angiograms for evaluation of atherosclerosis in post-infarct males-clinical correlatesFemoral artery atheromatous lesions were studied and their changes as a measure of therapeutic effectiveness were assessed. The incidence of coronary risk factors in 100 patients was determined. Abnormal cholesterol was present in 42 percent, abnormal triglycerides in 66 percent, abnormal intravenous glucose tolerance test in 52 percent, judged from a K value of .9 or less by the technique of Wahlbert. A history of high blood pressure was present in 32 percent. Smoking was one of the most common factors.
