SCAI SmartBrief | Aug 05, 2014

Updated guidance from the American College of Cardiology and the American Heart Association covers the use of invasive coronary angiography in patients with suspected stable ischemic heart disease. "It was not clear from the initial guideline when proceeding directly to diagnostic coronary angiography would be an option," said Dr. Srihari Naidu, who represented SCAI on the writing group. The guidelines indicate angiography may be appropriate when findings are expected to influence patient management. Healio (free registration) (07/30)
