To determine the usefulness of dobutamine stress echocardiography for detecting restenosis after percutaneous transluminal coronary angioplasty, the results of coronary arteriography and dobutamine stress echocardiography were compared in 103 patients 6 months after percutaneous transluminal coronary angiography. The dobutamine stress echocardiograms were obtained on the same day as the coronary arteriograms, which were analyzed by both quantitative and visual estimates of luminal narrowing… CONTINUE READING
