Progressive cardiac allograft vasculopathy (CAV) is a serious complication in long-term survivors after heart transplantation. Therefore, we hypothesize that CAV is a diffuse and progressive process, and endothelial function may play an important role in predicting clinical outcome after heart transplantation. Therefore, this single-blinded study is designed to evaluate endothelial function, microvascular flow response and morphology of coronary artery in cardiac allografts,
- The simultaneous use of IVUS and Doppler wire instrumentation in different pharmacological stress;
- Tl-201 SPECT (dipyridamole stress/rest); to evaluate the correlation of endothelial function, coronary morphology change and Tl-201 dipyridamole stress myocardial perfusion image.
