Comparative Effectiveness of Angiotensin-Converting Enzyme Inhibitors and/or Angiotensin II Receptor Blockers Added to Standard Medical Therapy for Treating Patients With Stable Ischemic Heart Disease and Preserved Left Ventricular Systolic Function
Results of Trials That Evaluated the Addition of an ACEI/ARB Combination Versus an ACEI Alone to Standard Medical Therapy for Stable Ischemic Heart Disease With Preserved Left Ventricular Systolic Function
The Ongoing Telmisartan Alone and in Combination with Ramipril Global Endpoint Trial (ONTARGET) was the only trial that investigated the addition of an ACEI/ARB combination to standard medical therapy versus standard medical therapy plus an ACEI alone. There was no evidence of any greater clinical benefit with the addition of the ACEI/ARB combination as opposed to an ACEI alone. There was evidence that patients who received the ACEI/ARB combination were at increased risk for adverse events.
