Detecting silent coronary stenoses and stratifying cardiac risk in patients with diabetes: ECG stress test or exercise myocardial scintigraphy?

Abstract

AIMS To determine whether performing a myocardial scintigraphy immediately after a maximal electrocardiogram (ECG) stress test is effective in detecting silent coronary stenoses and predicting cardiovascular events. METHODS Asymptomatic patients (n = 262) aged 57.6 +/- 8.8 years, with diabetes for 12.0 years (5-39) [median (range)] and no history of a… (More)
