Other risk factors include hypercholesterolemia, male gender, hypertension, cigarette smoking, diabetes mellitus, obesity, and family history of premature development of ischemic heart disease. CAD is a risk factor for perioperative cardiac complications, including MI, unstable angina, congestive heart failure (CHF), and serious dysrhythmias.
