A 58-year-old man was scheduled for exercise MPI as part of pre-renal transplant evaluation. Prior to this, he exercised regularly on a treadmill and stationary bike for 20-40 minutes, 3-4 times weekly. His past medical history is significant for end stage renal disease (ESRD), atrial fibrillation, medication non-adherence, and coronary artery stenting of the left circumflex artery three years earlier (Figure 1). His home medications included carvedilol, atorvastatin, amiodarone, cinacalcet, hydralazine, lisinopril, and sevelamer.
