abstract

  • A diminished HRR to vasodilator stress is a novel but increasingly important predictor of CAD mortality. HRR measurements of ≤ 4, 5-14, and ≥ 15 bpm were independently predictive of CAD mortality and underscore the importance of optimizing readily available novel markers of risk as highly relevant to identifying high and low risk patient subsets.
