This meta-analysis summarized the accuracy of stress myocardial perfusion scintigraphy (MPS) and stress echocardiography for the diagnosis of coronary artery disease (CAD) in patients with arterial hypertension. We searched for studies in which stress MPS or stress echocardiography were performed to detect CAD in hypertensive patients, with coronary angiography used as the reference test, published from January 1980 to December 2010. Studies performed in patients with known CAD, acute coronary… CONTINUE READING
