Silent myocardial ischemia, defined as the presence of ischemia without symptoms, is common in patients with coronary artery disease (CAD). The presence and extent of silent myocardial ischemia predicts poor prognosis in patients with or without known CAD. Silent Myocardial Ischemia “Objective evidence for myocardial ischemia without angina or anginal equivalents in a patient with coronary artery disease or coronary spasm.” - Carl Pepine - Not the same silent coronary diseaseFile Size: 2MB. If ischemia is severe or lasts too long, it can cause a heart attack (myocardial infarction) and can lead to heart tissue death. In most cases, a temporary blood shortage to the heart causes the pain of angina pectoris. But in other cases, there is no pain. These cases are called silent ischemia. Silent ischemia may also disturb the heart’s rhythm. Ischemia is a condition in which the blood flow (and thus oxygen) is restricted or reduced in a part of the body. Cardiac ischemia is the name for decreased blood flow and oxygen to the heart muscle. It's the term given to heart problems caused by narrowed heart arteries. When arteries are narrowed, less blood and oxygen reaches the heart muscle.

In fact, asymptomatic (or silent) ST-segment depression during ambulatory electrocardiogram monitoring occurs more often than symptomatic ST-segment depression in patients with coronary artery disease. Initial studies documented that silent ischemia provided independent prediction of adverse outcomes in patients with known and Cited by: About this book. Introduction. Although some investigators have questioned the importance and even the existence of silent myocardial ischemia, documentation presented at this two day symposium leaves little doubt about its existence and importance.   Silent myocardial ischemia (SMI)- objective documented ischemia in the absence of chest discomfort or other anginal equivalents-is a major component of the total ischemic burden for patients with ischemic heart disease.1 In the United States, an estimated 2 to 3 million persons with stable coronary artery disease (CAD) have evidence of silent ischemia. 2Author: Tera D.
