Sudden cardiac death in women with suspected Ischemic Heart Disease, Preserved ejection fraction, and no obstructive coronary artery disease: A report from the Women's Ischemia Syndrome Evaluation Study
Magnetic Resonance Imaging
Myocardial Perfusion Imaging
SCD contributes substantially to mortality in women with and without obstructive CAD. Corrected QT interval is the single independent SCD risk factor in women without obstructive CAD. In addition to management of traditional risk factors, these data indicate that further investigation should address mechanistic understanding and interventions targeting depression and corrected QT interval in women.
