Background: To examine the effect of serum testosterone levels on survival in a consecutive series of men with confirmed coronary disease and calculate the prevalence of testosterone deficiency.
Design: Longitudinal follow-up study.
Setting: Tertiary referral cardiothoracic centre. Patients 930 consecutive men with coronary disease referred for diagnostic angiography recruited between June 2000 and June 2002 and followed up for a mean of 6.962.1 years.
Outcome: All-cause mortality and vascular mortality. Prevalence of testosterone deficiency.
Results: The overall prevalence of biochemical testosterone deficiency in the coronary disease cohort using bio-available testosterone (bio-T).
