OBJECTIVE This study sought to evaluate the prognostic value of routine stress myocardial perfusion scintigraphy (MPS) 5 years after percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI). BACKGROUND Current appropriate use criteria define routine cardiac stress imaging <2 years after PCI as inappropriate and >2 years as uncertain in asymptomatic patients. METHODS All 339 of 683 BASKET (Basel Stent Kosteneffektivitäts Trial) 5-year survivors (55%) consenting to undergo protocol-mandated MPS and… CONTINUE READING
