ACC/AHA/ESC guidelines for the management of patients with supraventricular arrhythmias--executive summary. a report of the American college of cardiology/American heart association task force on
TLDR
The ACC/AHA/ESC guidelines for the management of patients with supraventricular arrhythmias—executive summary: a report of the American College of Cardiology/American Heart Association Task Force on Practice Guidelines, and the European Society of Cardiologist Committee for Practice Guidelines (Writing Committee to Develop Guidelines for the Management of Patients With Supraventricular Arrhythmias). Expand
Impact of Diabetes on the Risk Stratification Using Stress Single-Photon Emission Computed Tomography Myocardial Perfusion Imaging in Patients With Symptoms Suggestive of Coronary Artery Disease
TLDR
Using stress MPI in conjunction with clinical information can provide risk stratification of diabetic patients, and diabetic women had the worst outcome for any given extent of myocardial ischemia. Expand
ACC/AHA/ESC guidelines for the management of patients with supraventricular arrhythmias--executive summary: a report of the American College of Cardiology/American Heart Association Task Force on
TLDR
New guidelines for the management of patients with supraventricular arrhythmias are introduced and recommended for use in combination with standard clinical practice. Expand
Guidelines for the Management of Patients With Supraventricular Arrhythmias * — Executive Summary
Committee Members Carina Blomström-Lundqvist, MD, PHD, FACC, FESC, Co-chair; Melvin M. Scheinman, MD, FACC, Co-chair; Etienne M. Aliot, MD, FACC, FESC; Joseph S. Alpert, MD, FACC, FAHA, FESC; HughExpand
The economic consequences of available diagnostic and prognostic strategies for the evaluation of stable angina patients: an observational assessment of the value of precatheterization ischemia.
TLDR
Observational assessments reveal that stable chest pain patients who undergo a more aggressive diagnostic strategy have higher diagnostic costs and greater rates of intervention and follow-up costs. Expand
Prognostic value of cardiopulmonary exercise testing using percent achieved of predicted peak oxygen uptake for patients with ischemic and dilated cardiomyopathy.
OBJECTIVES We tested the hypothesis that percent achieved of predicted peak oxygen uptake (predicted VO2max) improves the prognostic accuracy of identifying high risk ambulatory patients withExpand
Correlation of pharmacological 99mTc-sestamibi myocardial perfusion imaging with poststenotic coronary flow reserve in patients with angiographically intermediate coronary artery stenoses.
TLDR
Two technologically diverse functional measures of stenosis severity--Doppler-derived poststenotic hyperemic intracoronary flow reserve and vasodilator stress 99mTc-sestamibi myocardial perfusion imaging--are highly correlated. Expand
Meta-analysis of intravenous dipyridamole-thallium-201 imaging (1985 to 1994) and dobutamine echocardiography (1991 to 1994) for risk stratification before vascular surgery.
TLDR
Meta-analysis of 15 studies demonstrated that the prognostic value of noninvasive stress imaging abnormalities for perioperative ischemic events is comparable between available techniques but that the accuracy varies with coronary artery disease prevalence. Expand
Incremental cost-effectiveness of exercise echocardiography vs. SPECT imaging for the evaluation of stable chest pain.
TLDR
A strategy aimed at cost-effective testing would support using echocardiography in low-risk patients with suspected coronary disease, whereas those higher risk patients benefit from referral to SPECT imaging. Expand
