Abstract

To assess the long-term prognostic significance of total ischemic time (silent plus painful ischemia) and silent ischemia in patients with unstable angina whose condition stabilized with medical treatment, 76 patients were studied. All patients underwent Holter ambulatory electrocardiographic (ECG) monitoring for ≥48 h beginning within the 1st 12 h of the hospital stay. Forty-three patients (Group A) had a total ischemic time ≥60 min, whereas 33 patients (Group B) had a total ischemic time
