Abstract

To assess whether Holter monitoring improves the sensitivity of exercise testing in identifying incomplete myocardial revascularization, both tests were performed in 45 patients from 3 to 5 months after elective coronary artery bypass grafting (CABG) for stable angina pectoris. Coronary angiography revealed incomplete revascularization in 26 patients. Six of these 26 had 52 episodes of ST-segment depression during Holter monitoring and myocardial ischemia during exercise testing. Their exercise capacity was significantly lower than that of 10 other patients in whom the results of exercise testing only were positive (heart rate at 0.1 mV ST-segment depression 112 ± 9 vs 123 ± 15 beats/min, p
