OBJECTIVES The aim of this prospective, multicenter, observational study was to compare the prognostic value of Doppler echocardiographic-derived coronary flow reserve (CFR) in diabetic and nondiabetic patients with known or suspected coronary artery disease and negative dipyridamole stress echocardiography. BACKGROUND The prognostic value of CFR in diabetic patients with negative stress echocardiography remains unknown. METHODS The study group consisted of 1,130 patients (207 diabetics… CONTINUE READING
