“…4 The Brazilian Guidelines for Stable Coronary Disease considers as intermediate probability values between 10% and 90%, and Montalescot et al 6 at the European Consensus of Stable Angina, admit as intermediate probability values between 15% and 85%, considering that the majority of diagnostic tests show sensitivity and specificity around 85%. [5][6] According to these data, when applied to a healthy population, 15 out of 100 tests will give false results and, therefore, it will be more appropriate not to submit patients with low disease prevalence (less than 15%) to the methods in question. In patients with high disease probability the test will also not bring benefits.…”

“…Stable angina management focuses on symptom extinction [4]. Drug therapy for stable angina includes antiplatelet agents, lipid-lowering drugs, beta-blockers, and angiotensin I-converting enzyme (ACE) inhibitors, which help decrease the incidence of myocardium ischemia and increase patient survival [4].…”

“…Drug therapy for stable angina includes antiplatelet agents, lipid-lowering drugs, beta-blockers, and angiotensin I-converting enzyme (ACE) inhibitors, which help decrease the incidence of myocardium ischemia and increase patient survival [4]. In addition, nitrates, calcium-channel blockers, trimetazidine, and ivabradine decrease the symptoms and episodes of myocardial ischemia, improving the patient's quality of life [4].…”

“…In these patients, it helps to define the revascularization strategy, as well as to better evaluate its extent, according to the functional evaluation of stenosis in critical coronary sites. 4 Myocardial perfusion scintigraphy (MPS) with tomographic images has been validated by several studies in the evaluation of diagnosis and prognosis for patients at risk of cardiovascular events. The functional repercussion of coronary lesions constitutes one of the main purposes of the method, which is based on the perfusion deficit assessment in myocardial segments irrigated by partially occluded arteries.…”
