The prognostic value of dobutamine stress echocardiography in patients with abdominal aortic aneurysm and concomitant coronary artery disease.


Journal Article (Review)

Patients undergoing abdominal aortic aneurysm (AAA) are at increased risk for cardiovascular complications such as cardiac death and nonfatal myocardial infarction.
