Background: Dobutamine stress echocardiography (DSE) is used for induction of ischemia in different population. One of those is chronic kidney disease patients before renal transplantation for pre-operative risk assessment. Aim of the work: to evaluate the difference in dobutamine stress echocardiography between those with chronic kidney disease (CKD) on regular dialysis and patient with no known history of chronic renal impairment. Methods: From February 2016 to January 2017, twenty consecutive chronic kidney disease patients prepared for renal transplantation without history suggestive of ischemic heart disease and 40 consecutive patients with without history of renal impairment. Their heart rate, dobutamine dose, atropine dose and adverse side effects were compared between the two groups. Results: Both groups were matched in age and risk factors. Peak heart rate (HR) (133.7±16.99 vs. 144.08±10.99 b/m, P=0.012), time to target heart rate was (17.75±3.29 vs. 13.05±2.95 min, p=0.001) and dobutamine and atropine doses were higher in chronic kidney disease group than other group. Adverse reactions present in both groups but more incidence in CKD group. Conclusion: Chronic kidney disease patients response to dobutamine when underwent dobutamine stress echocardiography showed delayed effect of it with more dobutamine and atropine doses needed and more adverse reactions including Bezold-Jarisch reflex.
