OBJECTIVE Although post-ischemic stunning has emerged as an important marker for severe coronary artery disease (CAD), differences in stress methods may have different effects on left ventricular (LV) volumes and function. METHODS To assess differential effects comparing exercise and pharmacologic stress on the LV measurements, (99m)Tc-sestamibi gated single-photon emission computed tomography (SPECT) acquired more than 30 min after stress and at rest was evaluated in 38 patients undergoing… CONTINUE READING
