Accuracy of Myocardial Perfusion Imaging to Diagnose Coronary Artery Disease in Patients Undergoing Liver Transplantation

Accuracy of Myocardial Perfusion Imaging to Diagnose Coronary Artery Disease in Patients Undergoing Liver Transplantation

Assessing cardiac risk in patients with advanced liver disease is complex due to difficulties in evaluating patient’s functional capacity. The purpose of this study was to evaluate the accuracy of Myocardial Perfusion Imaging (MPI) to identify Coronary Artery Disease (CAD) in this group of patients. Cardiovascular disease is a common cause of death in patients with advanced liver disease pre- and posttransplantation. Myocardial perfusion imaging is a useful test to detect CAD. However, it does not add diagnostic value in the presence of normal or mildly positive results.
