Abstract

The effect of acute testosterone administration on exercise-induced myocardial ischemia was assessed in 14 men with coronary artery disease and low plasma testosterone concentrations in a study of randomized, double-blind, crossover design. Testosterone increased time to 1-mm ST-segment depression compared with placebo by 66 (15 to 117) seconds (p = 0.016), suggesting a beneficial effect of testosterone on myocardial ischemia in these patients.
