|Recommendation/Comment||Microvascular dysfunction (MVD) seems not to be such uncommon even among non-elderly people and confers for the patients the same risk as an occlusive CAD.|
|Clinical implication||The right diagnosis of MVD using myocardial contrast echocardiography (MCE) seems to be an important noninvasive diagnostic tool for patients with ´´false´´ positive stress tests findings.|
