This trial is active, not recruiting.

Conditions vasculopathy, allograft
Treatment dobutamine stress echocardiography, coronarography, brachial arterial echography
Sponsor University Hospital, Strasbourg, France
Start date September 2006
End date November 2017
Trial size 120 participants
Trial identifier NCT00384540, 3660


Primary purpose :To early detect cardiac allograft vasculopathy and to identify patients with high risk of cardiac events, by coupling the analysis of the kinetics of the brain natriuretic peptide ( BNP) with that of the left ventricle (LV) during a dobutamine stress echocardiography.

Hypothesis : Plasma BNP elevation and abnormalities of LV kinetic during the ESD, will be associated with the presence of allograft vasculopathy and the arisen of cardiovascular events.
