OBJECTIVES This study pools data from published series examining late survival with revascularization versus medical therapy after myocardial viability testing in patients with severe coronary artery disease (CAD) and left ventricular (LV) dysfunction. BACKGROUND Previous observational studies have suggested survival benefit in such patients if they are revascularized when myocardial viability is detected on imaging tests. METHODS A MEDLINE database search returned 24 viability studies… CONTINUE READING
