Enhanced sensitivity for detection of coronary artery disease by addition of atropine to dipyridamole echocardiography. Effects of coronary stenosis on coronary flow reserve and resistance.

Stress Echocardiography

In Australia, from to the rate of SE use increased 4-fold [ 7 ]. Received May 30; Accepted Jun Integrated-quadruple stress-echo Four parameters now converge conceptually, logistically, and methodologically in the Integrated Quadruple IQ -stress echo.

We did not exclude studies based on the quality of data reported. Coronary flow velocity reserve during pharmacologic stress echocardiography with normal contractility adds important prognostic value in diabetic and nondiabetic patients. Data will be made available by Authors upon reasonable request.

Cardiac stress test trends among US patients younger than 65 years, Predicting the extent and location of coronary artery disease in acute myocardial infarction by echocardiography during dobutamine infusion.

Conclusion The recent ESC [ 5 ] guidelines on stable angina and EAE recommendations on stress echocardiography [ 61 ] are evidence-based in concluding that “dobutamine and vasodilators at appropriately high doses are equally potent ischemic stressors for inducing wall abnormalities in presence of a critical coronary artery stenosis. Force definition incorporates two well recognized prognostic markers, since low systolic blood pressure response and increased LV ESV pkcano stress [ 48 ] both determine a blunted force response and have been separately associated with increased mortality.


It is however imperative that your “stone” stress is of sufficient weight high cumulative dose and thrown with sufficient speed fast infusion rate in order to catch the two birds.

Another potential confounder is the publication bias. Availability of data and materials Data will be made available by Authors upon reasonable request.

Experimental and clinical studies show that a decrease in blood flow leads to a drop of regional myocardial temperature, and an increase leads to the immediate appearance of warm spots detectable by a noninvasive thermogram [ 58 ].

Noninvasive assessment of left ventricular contractility by pacemaker stress echocardiography. Studies without angiographic information and with only prognostic information available were also excluded [ 27 – 29 ].

This effect is achieved with standard doses, through stimulation of A2a adenosine receptors on coronary arterioles smooth muscle cells and is convenient for hyperemic imaging [ 50 ].

Stern and Simes have shown that positive results are not only more likely to be published than negative results, but they also have a significant shorter time to publication [ 53 ]. Meta-analysis, editorials, letters have been excluded.

We also calculated the pooled values of sensitivity, specificity and accuracy weighted for sample size with fixed effect model Comprehensive Meta-Analysis program — Biostat Englewood, NJ. Integrated quadruple stress echocardiography. Prognostic value of coronary flow reserve in asymptomatic moderate or severe aortic stenosis with preserved ejection fraction and nonobstructed coronary arteries.

The increased use of SE brings with it an increased risk of inappropriateness [ 11 ]. The ischemic response by RWMA is a strong prognostic predictor of subsequent hard events and death in all patients subsets, from low risk patients with stable angina and preserved baseline left ventricular function to patients with known CAD and previous myocardial infarction [ 2 — 5 ].


In the risk-benefit balance, the risk must include the long-term cancer risk, not only the acute risks of stress or contrast injection [ 19 euugenio. RWMA are linked to stress-induced subendocardial hypoperfusion, usually caused by a critical reduction in coronary flow reserve due to an anatomically and physiologically significant epicardial artery stenosis [ 1 ]. Comparison of dobutamine stress echocardiography with dipyridamole stress echocardiography for detection of viable myocardium after myocardial infarction treated with thrombolysis.

It can appear even more puzzling that the same active principle, given intravenously, is an effective anti-ischemic drug [ 43 ], a picajo test capable to recruit contractile reserve through a direct metabolic cardioprotective effect [ 14 ], a hyperaemic stressor with limited capacity to evoke ischemia [ 1213 ] and — at high, fast doses — a strong ischemic stress [ 44 ]. When state-of-the art protocols are considered, dipyridamole and dobutamine stress echo have similar accuracy, and — most importantly — ecuocardiography same sensitivity for detection of CAD.

Pathophysiology The B-profile with normal lung sliding and B-lines provides a unique way to evaluate semi-quantitatively subclinical pulmonary congestion which heralds impending acute HF and cannot be assessed reliably with standard approaches of measuring weight gain, pulmonary crackles on lung auscultation, echocardiographt Kerley B-lines on chest X-rays [ 40 ].
