Multiple Choice Question of the Week : Nuclear-11 : [Answer]


In calculating CHADS2-VASc score, all the following vascular pathologies are considered a component of the “VASc” except:

A) Prior myocardial infarction
B) Peripheral arterial disease
C) Prior coronary revascularization
D) Aortic plaque

Find on the right an example of MPS with previous MI and ischemia on LAD, LCx and RCA territories

The correct answer is: C) Prior coronary revascularization.
History of vascular disease is a parameter of CHA2DS2-VASc score, defined as myocardial infarction (MI), peripheral arterial disease and aortic plaque.
The presence of coronary disease without prior myocardial infarction is not currently a component of the score.
