Cardiac outcomes after screening for asymptomatic coronary artery disease in patients with type 2 diabetes: the DIAD study: a randomized controlled trial

Top

Young LH, Wackers FJ, Chyun DA, et al for the DIAD Investigators.Cardiac outcomes after screening for asymptomatic coronary artery disease in patients with type 2 diabetes: the DIAD study: a randomized controlled trial. JAMA. 2009;301(15):1547-1555. Coronary artery disease (CAD) is the major cause of mortality and morbidity in patients with type 2 diabetes. But the utility of screening patients with type 2 diabetes for asymptomatic CAD is controversial.

Comparison of myocardial reperfusion in patients undergoing percutaneous coronary intervention in ST-segment elevation acute myocardial infarction

Top

Marso SP, Miller T, Rutherford BD, et al. Comparison of myocardial reperfusion in patients undergoing percutaneous coronary intervention in ST-segment elevation acute myocardial infarction with versus without diabetes mellitus (from the EMERALD Trial). Am J Cardiol. 2007;100(2):206-10. Epub 2007 Jun 4. Diabetes mellitus is strongly associated with increased cardiovascular morbidity and mortality in patients with ST-segment elevation myocardial infarction.

The role of non-invasive imaging in the risk stratification of asymptomatic diabetic subjects

Top

Anand DV, Lim E, Lahiri A, Bax JJ. The role of non-invasive imaging in the risk stratification of asymptomatic diabetic subjects. Eur Heart J. Eur Heart J. 2005. Coronary artery disease (CAD) is the leading cause of death in patients with diabetes. Patients often present with advanced and asymptomatic disease. Proposed strategies that may favourably affect CAD risk and outcomes in this patient population include identifying diabetic patients with subclinical disease at high risk of future cardiac events.

Prognostic Value of Dobutamine-Atropine Stress Myocardial Perfusion Imaging in Patients With Diabetes

Top

Schinkel AF, Elhendy A, Van Domburg RT, et al. Prognostic Value of Dobutamine-Atropine Stress Myocardial. Diabetes Care. 2002;25:1637-1643. Exercise tolerance in patients with diabetes is frequently impaired due to noncardiac disease such as claudication and polyneuropathy. This study assesses the prognostic value of dobutamine stress myocardial perfusion imaging in patients with diabetes.

Prediction of Cardiovascular Events in Clinically Selected High-Risk NIDDM Patients: Prognostic Value of Exercise Stress Test and Computed Tomography

Top

Vanzetto G, Halimi S, Hammoud T, et al. Prediction of Cardiovascular Events in Clinically Selected High-Risk NIDDM Patients: Prognostic Value of Exercise Stress Test and Thallium-201 Single-Photon Emission Computed Tomography. Diabetes Care. 1999;22:19-26. We evaluated the prognostic value of an exercise stress test and thallium-201 scintigraphy for the prediction of cardiac events in selected high-risk NIDDM patients.
