Clinical Study Title:
Decreased rate of coronary restenosis after lowering of plasma homocysteine levels.
|Plain English Summary:|
|This study looked at the use of a b-vitamin supplement complex including folate, b12 and b6 on the restenosis after a coronary angioplasty. A total of 205 participants were given either the b-vitamin complex or a placebo daily for a total of 6 months past surgery. The participants who were taking the b-vitamin complex had a slower rate of resenosis post surgery, and also cut down on post operative additional surgeries. This is a cost effective adjunctive treatment to coronary angioplasty. The use of the vitamin b12, b6 and folate supplements aids in recovery after heart surgery.|
