However, it must be noted that in the ASTRAL trial, although the patients enrolled were sicker than those usually included in the studies (mean baseline serum creatinine around 2 mg/dl), were not taking antiplatelet therapy at the time of stenting in a significant proportion (up to 24%) and exhibited a mild renal stenosis (<70%) in up to 40%, there was a strong trend toward a decreased rate of renal impairment in the revascularization group compared to the medically treated group (difference in the slope of the reciprocal of the serum creatinine level 0.06x10-3 liters per micromole per year, p=0.06).
