[Silent ischemia].


Silent ischaemia is the term which has appeared with the development of such diagnostic techniques as exercise test or Holter ECG monitoring. The term relates to depression of the ST-T segment in ECG despite absence of pain felt by the patient. Episodes of silent ischaemia occur in all clinical forms of coronary disease, are of prognostic importance and require treatment with monitoring of treatment effectiveness. The problem of pain absence in certain ischaemic episodes has not yet been elucidated.
