Abstract/OtherAbstract:
The sensitivity, specificity, positive predictive value, and negative predictive value of the dipyridamole sestamibi stress test (DSST) in predicting graft obstruction or > or = 50% new native coronary artery disease (CAD) in 88 men compared with 56 women with prior coronary artery bypass surgery were 96% and 94% (p = NS), 30% and 67% (p = NS), 91% and 96 % (p = NS), 50% and 57% (p = NS), respectively. The sensitivity, specificity, positive predictive value, and negative predictive value of the DSST in predicting graft obstruction or > or = 50% new native CAD in 92 patients aged < 65 years were 95% and 95% (p = NS), 50% and 40% (p = NS), 96% and 87% (p = NS), and 43% and 67% (p = NS), respectively.
