The clinical significance of stress-induced ST-segment elevation and T-wave pseudonormalization in infarct-related leads is still controversial. Therefore, we conducted the present study to assess this issue using simultaneous dobutamine stress echocardiography (DSE) and thallium-201 single-photon emission computed tomography. A total of 119 patients with Q-wave myocardial infarction were enrolled in this study. There were 58 patients with (group I) and 61 patients without (group II) dobutamine… CONTINUE READING
