  • Results refer to the guidelines positive and negative predictive value to predict ischemia on cardiac stress testing and need revascularization as a result of the stress testing. Results are based on the 178 patients who underwent stress testing. The KDOQI guideline recommends universal stress testing and thus was excluded from this analysis. NA, not applicable.
