OBJECTIVES We sought to evaluate the incidence of silent ischemia versus symptomatic ischemia six months after percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) and its impact on prognosis and to test the utility of myocardial perfusion single-photon emission computed tomography (SPECT), or MPS, for risk stratification in these patients. BACKGROUND Silent ischemia is frequent after PCI. However, little is known about silent ischemia and long-term outcome after PCI and stenting. METHODS In 356… CONTINUE READING
