The incidence and the prevalence of coronary artery disease (CAD) remains the most significant cause of morbidity and mortality to general public health. Pilots suffer equally from CAD, and the evaluation of disease severity and risk stratification remain a major challenge in aerospace medicine. For the aviation medical examiner, the challenge is to ensure that the right testing is done to accompany the application for airman medical certification for pilots with CAD. At the level of the medical certification authority, the further challenge is to decide what additional information may be required to assess risk posed by CAD and associated cardiac dysfunction.
