To the Editor: Dr Waters and colleagues1 found that neither hormone replacement therapy
nor antioxidant vitamins had any effect on angiographic or clinical outcomes
among postmenopausal women with known coronary artery disease. The authors
also found a nonsignificant trend toward worse outcomes in women who received
either intervention. I have 2 concerns, however, about their methodology.
