is usually preferred over pharmacological stress because it provides information about exertional symptoms and blood pressure response (6).
"Repeat coronary revascularization did not improve outcomes in asymptomatic patients with high-risk exercise echocardiography
findings after an initial revascularization procedure," according to a study published online in Archives of Internal Medicine.
This indicates that standard exercise testing rather than exercise echocardiography
might be sufficient for risk evaluation.
