Patients under­going abdom­inal ­aortic aneu­rysm (AAA) are at ­increased ­risk for car­di­o­vas­cular com­pli­ca­tions ­such as car­diac ­death and non­fatal myo­car­dial infarc­tion. Dobu­ta­mine ­stress ech­o­car­di­og­raphy is an estab­lished, ­cost-effec­tive tech­nique for the detec­tion of cor­o­nary ­artery dis­ease (CAD). ­This ­review ­will ­focus on the addi­tional prog­nostic ­value of dobu­ta­mine ­stress ech­o­car­di­og­raphy for per­i­op­er­a­tive and ­late prog­nosis in ­patients ­with AAA and CAD.
