Abstract/OtherAbstract:
The aim of our study was to compare the prognostic value of stress echocardiography and exercise electrocardiography after uncomplicated non-Q-wave acute myocardial infarction in a series of 89 female patients. Our data show that stress echocardiography has independent predictive value in a female patient population recovering from uncomplicated acute myocardial infarction.
