Abstract

This study examined the predictors of early coronary revascularization in 816 patients with chest pain syndromes who had coronary artery disease by angiography and exercise single-photon emission computed tomography (SPECT) thallium imaging. Multivariate analysis of clinical, stress, nuclear, and catheterization variables revealed the presence of SPECT reversibility as the most powerful predictor (chi-square = 43) of early revascularization.
