Abstract/OtherAbstract:
Dobutamine stress echocardiography (DSE) is a successful technique for detection of ischemia in patients with suspected coronary artery disease (CAD). There are some data that administration of β-blocker after peak infusion of dobutamine can improve sensitivity. The goal of this manuscript is to review the current literature in regard to the mechanism and accuracy of post-dobutamine β-blocker administration for ischemia detection. In this review, we present 2 case reports followed by detailed review of the literature.
