Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


The evidence linking smoking and coronary artery disease is quite strong, and there is also a positive relationship between smoking cessation and reduction in cardiovascular disease risk. Nicotine replacement therapy and bupropion are effective treatments for smoking cessation and are most effective when combined with behavioral counseling. Intensive multicomponent interventions that include a case-management component have produced the highest smoking cessation rates for patients who suffer a myocardial infarction.
