The long prognostic value of wall motion abnormalities during the recovery phase of dobutamine stress echocardiography after receiving acute beta-blockade.
Stratifying the risk in unstable angina with dobutamine stress echocardiography.
Dobutamine stress echocardiography is highly accurate for the prediction of contractile reserve in the early postoperative period, but may underestimate late recovery in contractile reserve after revascularization of the hibernating myocardium.
None of our patients developed regional wall motion abnormalities during dobutamine stress echocardiography testing, which is a sensitive and specific method for the detection of myocardial ischemia (16,17).
In the present study, a proportion of PVD patients had increased IMA concentrations at baseline (26%) and 1 h (48%) after exercise testing despite the absence of cardiac ischemia (negative results of dobutamine stress echocardiography testing).
Prognostic value of predischarge dobutamine stress echocardiography in chest pain patients with a negative cardiac troponin T.
Dobutamine stress echocardiography in the evaluation of late anthracycline cardiotoxicity in childhood cancer survivors.
Detection of early anthracycline-induced cardiotoxicity in childhood cancer with dobutamine stress echocardiography.
The aim of this study was to investigate the response of heart to stress according to the size of the prosthetic valve in patients who had undergone mitral valve replacement by using dobutamine stress echocardiography and to evaluate the relationship between the size of the prosthetic valve and cardiac recovery-remodeling process.
Dobutamine stress echocardiography can be used in order to evaluate hemodynamic performance of the valve in vivo under stress and it is a simple, safe and easily available method (3).
