INTRODUCTION Previous studies showed differences in platelet reactivity in response to exercise in patients with syndrome X (SX) and those with obstructive coronary artery disease (CAD). In this study, we investigated whether similar differences could be detectable in response to a mental stressful stimulus. MATERIALS AND METHODS We studied 30 SX patients (60+/-8 years, 8 men), 20 patients with stable angina and angiographically documented CAD (SA, 66+/-8 years, 14 men), and 11 patients with… CONTINUE READING
