Abstract

The aim of this study was to evaluate the anatomo-clinical correlations and the prognostic significance of silent myocardial ischaemia (SI) during exercise testing (ET). Four hundred and six patients with angiographically proven CAD and positive ET were studied. Patients were divided into two groups: 309 patients (Group A) with positive ET for both electrocardiographical findings and angina, and 97 patients (Group B) with positive ET for electrocardiographical findings but not for angina (SI). In Group A the following clinical characteristics differed significantly from Group B: incidence of diabetes mellitus (15.8% vs 27.8%, P
