Value of normal or mild coronary artery disease on angiography during workup of suspected angina pectoris

Coronary angiography is the standard technique for assessment of coronary artery disease (CAD). In many patients investigated with angiography, no or minimal CAD (<50% stenosis) is detected. It is uncertain how this “negative” result influences subsequent management and outcomes. We reviewed characteristics and outcomes in a contemporary cohort of patients with suspected angina pectoris and subsequently “negative” coronary angiography. T. Wang, T. Oh, C. Samaranayake, T.
