Mental stress-induced ischemia in patients with coronary artery disease: echocardiographic characteristics and relation to exercise-induced ischemia.

Abstract

OBJECTIVE The aims of this study were to investigate the incidence and parameters associated with myocardial ischemia during mental stress (MS) as measured by echocardiography and to evaluate the relation between MS-induced and exercise-induced myocardial ischemia. METHODS Study participants were 79 patients (63 men; mean [M] [standard deviation {SD}] age… (More)
