Dipyridamole causes dilation in normal arteries and no change or constriction in arteries with disease. Therefore the segments of the heart that have disease will get less blood flow than the healthy parts. Dipyridamole by itself can cause symptoms of shortness of breath and flushing even in people with healthy hearts. However, it also causes chest pain in persons with coronary artery disease.
Some of the alternatives include aspirin, Clopidogrel (Plavix), ticlodipine (Ticlid), dipyridamole (Persantine). Another alternative is Heparin injection. Different situations require different levels of anticoagulation. It is important to discuss the best treatment option with a physician.
I want to know wather my baby would save from it? What should I do.I am a heart patient so that I use that injection by doctors advice ..now a days I feel rapidly increase my heart beet.
ECG last month showed SVES, RBBB. This week he has stress test with dipyridamole protocol, and injection of thallium-201. The result showed "evidence of mild, small to medium size, irreversible perfusion defect in the inferior/inferolateral wall (mid to basal level)." Could you explain what this means? Does he need to have surgery or pacemaker? thanks in advance for your help.
Pharmacological stress Tc-99m MIBI scan was performed with Dipyridamole given at arate of 0.14 mg/Kg/min over 4 minutes followed by injection of radio tracer 6 minutes later. Findings are: Peak stress images revealed hypoperfused infero-septal and apical segment, which showed reversal at rest. Impression: Findings are consistent with infero-septal and apical reversible ischemia. Thanks all!
Pharmacological Intervention was performed with injection persantin (Dipyridamole) at a rate of 0.142 mg/kg/min, 07 Mci of Tc-99m Myoview was given I/V. His resting ECG showed 0.5-1mm ST-T Depression in inferolateral leads. No further ECG changes were noted during and after persantin infusion.
Dipyridamole was infused coupled with low level excercise without any significant complaints and ischemia ECG changes. heart rate changed from 68 to 100/min and blood pressure from 130/80 to 140/90 mm of HG. Findings: Images acquired after stress injection of Tc-99m-MIBI showed markedly reduced to absent tracer uptake at apex,antoseptal wall,apical anterior segments and almost whole of the inferior wall.

I have done some browsing and found that instead of exercise, a drug call dipyridamole is sometimes used. Can you tell about this drug and what its side effects may be. My dad is on several medications and I am concerned about the possible interaction between this drug and the medications he is on. Finally, during the test he had a lot of lower back pain and had the sensation he lost feeling in his legs and feet. Is this a possible side effect?
