Abstract

To evalutate whether Holter electrocardiographic monitoring may improve the detection of ST-segment depression in patients with anginal chest pain and normal coronary arteries, we performed symptom-limited exercise testing and 24-hour Holter monitoring in a group of 38 such patients (27 women, age 54 ± 8 years). Patients were divided into 2 groups: group X1 included 28 patients with and group X2 10 patients without significant ST-segment depression during exercise testing. There were no significant differences between the 2 groups in age, gender, characteristics of chest pain, exercise duration, heart rate (HR), and blood pressure at peak exercise, but anginal pain during exercise testing was reported by 10 patients of group X1 (36%) and 9 of group X2 (90%) (p
