Stress echocardiography in paediatrics: Implications for the evaluation of anomalous aortic origin of the coronary arteries

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

Stress echocardiography in paediatrics is used to evaluate pre-and post-operative coronary artery conditions, as well as to gain haemodynamic information for a variety of diagnoses, although evidence regarding sensitivity, specificity, and predictive value is lacking. This review will consider the available literature with a focus on anomalous aortic origin of the coronary arteries and discuss a practical approach to test selection and use.
