Children Presenting to Emergency with Chest Pain: Long-term follow-up study.

Abstract

This study examines the long-term outcome of a cohort of 317 pediatric patients who presented to an emergency department with chest pain. There were no deaths and few hospital stays. Patients were all perceived as "well" (self-assessment or parental assessment) at follow-up contact. This study supports the belief that chest pain in children is benign.
