Abstract

Background: Patients who present to the emergency department (ED) with symptoms of potential acute coronary syndrome (ACS) can be safely discharged home after a coronary computed tomographic angiography (CTA) with a negative result. However, the duration of time for which a negative coronary CTA scan result can be used to inform decision making when patients have recurrent symptoms is not known. Objective: We examined patients who received more than 1 coronary CTA for evaluation of ACS to determine whether they had disease progression. Our main outcome was whether any patient had a maximal stenosis cross the threshold from noncritical (
