ABSTRACT
The article presents a study of the prevalence and clinical predictors of silent myocardial ischaemia (SMI) in patients with type 2 diabetes. Coronary artery disease is the leading cause of death in patients with type 2 diabetes, but is often silent. Consequently, it may be far advanced at the time of initial clinical presentation. Significant subclinical atherosclerosis and SMI were present in an alarmingly high proportion of asymptomatic type 2 diabetics. Almost 1 out of 2 patients with a CAC score >100 had abnormal MPI and 20 percent had a major perfusion abnormality warranting further evaluation.
