Table 2 The CAC characteristics according to outcome during follow-up

From: Coronary calcium in patients with and without diabetes: first manifestation of acute or chronic coronary events is characterized by different calcification patterns

Variable No event N = 628 Acute event N = 18 Chronic event N = 21 p value
TCS mean (SD) 93 ± 276 55 ± 62 914 ± 660 <0.001
TCS >0 311 (50) 13 (72) 21 (100) <0.001
CV > 1 187 (30) 12 (67) 20 (95) <0.001
No CV mean (SD) 1.02 ± 1.15 1.72 ± 1.23 3.05 ± 0.74 <0.001
  1. TCS - Total calcium score (AU); CV - calcified vessel >1 - more than one calcified major coronary vessel in one of the 4 regions: main left artery, LAD, LCX and RCA including their branches; No CV – mean number of calcified major coronary vessels.
  2. For TCS >0 and CV > 1 data are number (%) of patients.
