Abstract

Aims: Patients with normal coronary arteries have a heterogeneous prognosis. Aim of this study was to assess whether dipyridamole stress echocardiography positivity identifies a prognostically less benign subset. Methods and results: We selected 457 patients (245 males; 56 ± 10 years) who underwent stress high-dose dipyridamole echocardiography and had angiographically non-significant (
