LAYERLE, Bernardo  and  VIGNOLO, Washington. Screening for ischemic heart disease and revascularization in diabetic patients with stable coronary artery disease: a clinical perspective. Rev.Urug.Cardiol. [online]. 2017, vol.32, n.2, pp.158-172. ISSN 0797-0048.

Diabetic patients have a high prevalence of ischemic heart disease with peculiar clinical, anatomic and therapeutic features. Management includes medical therapy and sometimes percutaneous or surgical revascularization. This paper reviews available evidence on indication and outcomes of the different revascularization options. As a relevant related topic, pertinence of silent ischemia screening in diabetics is discussed first.

Keywords : diabetes mellitus; ischemic heart disease; screening; myocardial revascularization.
