To the Editor As clinicians and researchers in the testosterone field, we found surprising the results reported by Dr Vigen and colleagues1 of increased deaths and cardiovascular events in male veterans receiving testosterone following coronary angiography because these results contradict a literature spanning more than 20 years.2 Should testosterone therapy be considered unsafe based on this study? We do not believe so.
