Abstract

OBJECTIVES The objective of this prospective study was to determine the differences in the prognostic significance of an exercise test (ET) that indicates a low risk of events (low-risk exercise test [LRET]) between patientswith unstable angina (UA) and those vith chronic stable angina (CSA). BACKGROUND It is not known whether the prognostic significance of an LRET is influenced by, the disease that is the reason for performing exercise testing. METHODS All patient, not presenting vith high-risk criteria were submittedto a prognostic ET. The ET was performed by patients with CSA and patient,vith primary UA stabilized with medical therapy. Medical therapy, was planned for all patients. A Combined end point was defined as cardiac death, nonfatal acute myocardial infarction or hospital admission for UA. Multivariate analysis was performed to determine the independent predictors of events. RESULTS Low-risk criteria were fulfilled by 105 patients with UA and 86 patients with CSA. The mean follow-up time was 347 +/- 229 days. The event rate was,, higher in the UA group than in the CSA group (28% vs. 9%, p = 0.001). The CSA group showed worse ET results, Performance of ET by patients with UA was the principal predictor of events (odds ratio 4.2, p = 0.0005). CONCLUSIONS Among patients who underwent an LRET, those with LIA had a rate of events significantly, higher than that of patients with CSA, despite the worse results of ET in patients with CSA.
