Abstract/OtherAbstract:
CONCLUSIONS: DE is a safe and reliable method for investigating CAD in patients over 70 years of age with an abnormal resting ECG. In our study, the most predictive independent parameter for the onset of a CE was the appearance of segmental-contraction abnormalities of the LV and their severity during DE.
