It has been recently demonstrated by many authors that diastolic abnormalities of the left ventricle are the earliest mechanical manifestations of myocardial ischemia preceding both the ECG changes and angina pectoris. Recently, we have shown that using a handgrip-apexcardiographic test (HAT), one can accurately assess exercise-induced abnormalities of diastolic function in patients with angina pectoris or silent ischemia. Aim of this study is to compare the clinical value of HAT and stress-ECG… CONTINUE READING
