Abstract


Background: The increasing role of percutaneous coronary interventions (PCI) in the treatment of coronary artery disease and relatively high restenosis rate following PCI require the introduction of available, easy to perform and cost-effective tests that would enable detection of restenosis after PTCA and identification of patients at particularly high risk of restenosis.
Aim: To estimate the predictive value of early dobutamine stress echocardiography (DSE) for the assessment of risk of coronary restenosis.
Methods: Thirty-nine patients with a single coronary vessel disease after PCI were enrolled in this study. DSE was performed twice – 2 to 3 days after the procedure and repeated after 8 to 12 months. All patients underwent coronary angiography after one-year follow-up.
Results: Data analysis of direct pre- and postprocedural echocardiography showed that the wall motion score index decreased significantly (p
