  • Descrição: Objectives. This study evaluated the value of noninvasive testing to predict cardiac events in patients with stable coronary disease after hospital admission (and risk stratification) for an acute coronary event. Background. Exercise testing with thallium perfusion imaging identifies patients with obstructive coronary artery disease and has been used to stratify patients after myocardial infarction. Its usefulness for predicting cardiac events in patients with stable coronary disease after recovery from an acute coronary event was explored. Methods. Nine hundred thirty-six patients were enrolled 1 to 6 months after hospital admission for a coronary event Patients underwent exercise treadmill testing with planar thallium-201 scintigraphy and were followed up for an average of 23 months (range 6 to 43). End points were 1) unstable angina requiring hospital admission, nonfatal myocardial infarction or cardiac death; 2) nonfatal infarction or...
