Correlates of treadmill test results among hypertensive patients with ischemic heart disease


Dr. Johnson George

Introduction: Coronary artery disease (CAD), also called heart disease or ischemic heart disease, results from a complex process known as atherosclerosis, fatty deposits (plaques) of cholesterol and other cellular waste products build up in the inner linings of heart’s arteries.

Methodology:Detailed history was taken and thorough clinical examination was done as per the proforma with particular reference to coronary risk factors. Relevant biochemical investigations and risk factor stratification was carried out in every case of IHD.

Results: All the patients with hypotensive and flat or non-raising blood pressure response were positive for IHD while 39.28% and 21.42% of patients with normal and hypertensive response were positive for IHD.

Conclusion: To improve the prognostic outlook in hypertensives one should aim to improve all the risk factor interventions considering the total cardiovascular risk profile.
