Patterns of Cardiac Stress Testing After Revascularization in Community Practice Full Text

Shah BR et al. – Although there is limited consensus as to the appropriate role of elective stress testing after coronary revascularization, more than one half of all patients in community practice had at least 1 stress test within 24 months of revascularization. Yield on such testing was low: only 5% of patients tested ultimately required repeat revascularization. These findings support the need to define better the role of stress testing after recent revascularization.
