OBJECTIVES This study evaluated the prognostic value of transient ischemic dilation (TID) of the left ventricle (LV) in patients with normal stress myocardial perfusion single photon emission computed tomography (MPS). BACKGROUND The prognostic value of TID in patients with an otherwise normal MPS has not been defined. METHODS We identified 1,560 patients who had normal stress MPS (436 vasodilator and 1,124 exercise stress), and no rest LV enlargement (Population 1) and followed up for 2.30… CONTINUE READING
