Early revascularisation benefits patients with severe inducible ischaemia: study

The observational research offers new insights on optimising treatment depending on LVEF status, researchers say

Early revascularisation almost halves the risk of death among adults with reduced left ventricular ejection fraction and severe inducible ischaemia during stress testing, according to US cardiologists.

Results from their observational study also highlight the “general lack of benefit” from early revascularisation in stable patients who do not manifest inducible ischaemia, regardless of left ventricular ejection fraction (LVEF) status.
