ABSTRACT
Combined atrial pacing and thallium-201 scintigraphy were performed in a man with multiple coronary artery lesions unable to perform exercise stress testing. Severe angina and ischemic ST depression in the inferior and anterior ECG leads occurred at a peak double product of 22,400 beats-mm Hg/min; thallium-201 scintigraphy showed reversible perfusion defects of the inferior, posterior, and septal segments. After angiographically successful angioplasty of a 95% right coronary artery lesion, repeat atrial pacing/thallium-201 scintigraphy (peak double product 27,750 beats-mm Hg/min) produced mild angina no ST depression in the inferior leads, and a normal thallium-201 scan. This case illustrates the value of the atrial pacing/thallium-201 stress test for evaluating the need for, and results of, coronary angioplasty in patients unable to perform exercise stress testing.
