Does anyone know what the mechanism behind the dipyramidole stress test is? TiA
This is what I got out of Lily's.
Dipyramadole blocks adenosine breakdown -> increased adenosine -> vasodilation of unstenosed coronary arteries -> increased blood flow in healthy arteries and relative ischemia of blocked coronary arteries -> "cold spots" on scanning or EKG changes
Hope that helps a bit.
Ah, so it has the same effect as a coronary steal.
its basically like making someones heart act like its exercising without the exercising.
