Asymptomatic Coronary Artery Disease, Silent Ischemia: A Cardiologist’s Headache

Asymptomatic Coronary Artery Disease, Silent Ischemia: A Cardiologist’s Headache

We need more evidence to guide us in the management of silent ischemia. Confirmed asymptomatic coronary artery disease is a problem for cardiologists, who lack enough evidence to guide a risk-benefit assessment that justifies revascularization. Revascularizing the outcome of a functional assessment may reduce the rates of death and infarction, or it may just be

Follow-Up at 10 Years for Invasive vs. Conservative Strategy for Non-ST-Segment Elevation Infarction

Diabetics’ Silent Ischemia Myth Busted

Diabetes mellitus patients generally present more diffuse coronary disease, faster lesion progression and higher risk of restenosis after PCI. The way these anatomical differences translate into in a different clinical practice, compared to non-diabetic patients, remains unclear.   Prior studies comparing the frequency of angina symptoms in diabetic vs. non-diabetic patients have arrived to contradicting outcomes,
