Abstract

Design, Setting, and Participants: The Prospective Observational Longitudinal Registry of Patients With Stable Coronary Artery Disease (CLARIFY) registry enrolled outpatients in 45 countries with stable CAD in 2009 to 2010 with 2-year follow-up (median, 24.1 months; range, 1 day to 3 years). Enrollees included 32 105 outpatients with priormyocardial infarction, chest pain, and evidence of myocardial ischemia, evidence of CAD on angiography, or prior revascularization. Of these, 20 291 (63.2%) had undergone a noninvasive test for myocardial ischemia within 12 months of enrollment and were categorized into one of the following 4 groups: no angina or ischemia (n = 13 207 [65.1%]); evidence of myocardial ischemia without angina (silent ischemia) (n = 3028 [14.9%]); anginal symptoms alone (n = 1842 [9.1%]); and angina and ischemia (n = 2214 [10.9%]). EXPOSURES Stable CAD.Importance: In the era of widespread revascularization and effective antianginals, the prevalence and prognostic effect of anginal symptoms andmyocardial ischemia among patients with stable coronary artery disease (CAD) are unknown.Objective: To describe the current clinical patterns among patients with stable CAD and the association of anginal symptoms ormyocardial ischemia with clinical outcomes.Main outcome and Measure: The composite of cardiovascular (CV)-related death or nonfatalmyocardial infarction.Results: Overall, 4056 patients (20.0%) had anginal symptoms and 5242 (25.8%) had evidence of myocardial ischemia on results of noninvasive testing. Of 469 CV-related deaths ormyocardial infarctions, 58.2%occurred in patients without angina or ischemia, 12.4%in patients with ischemia alone, 12.2%in patients with angina alone, and 17.3%in patients with both.
