Background and purpose : CAD is the most important cause of mortality and morbidity in all orer the world. Aim of this study was to determine the effect of EDTA on the process of atherosclerosis.
Materials and methods : The study is a randomized clinical trial. 14 patients whom were not suitable candidates for mechanical- Revascularization(PCI or CABG), were treated with EDTA injection twice weekly(25 injections). Data including demographic characteristics, clinical status, stress test results, Echo, and angiographic findings were recorded. Paired t- test McNemar was performed to analyse the data.
Results : EDTA improved the clinical status and LVEF(P<0.0S) but the effect of EDTA on stress- test capacity and severity of angiographic coronary stenosis was not significan
Conclusion : It seems that patients who are not good candidates for mechanical revasculazation are suitable for EDTA therapy.
