This involves sending the patient for cardiac stress testing provided two conditions are met: The surgeon has to be unwilling to operate without the stress test results and the patient must be willing to undergo coronary artery bypass grafting before the noncardiac surgery, should the stress test and follow-up cardiac catheterization prove positive.
Chest pain in patients with normal coronary angiogram It is possible that better clinical assessment and non-invasive cardiac stress testing could lower the rate of referral for invasive coronary artery angiography with non-cardiac/atypical chest pain and reduce the incidence of normal coronary angiograms.
