Aim: Dipyridamole has extensively been administered to simulate physical activity in cardiovascular assessment. The aim of this study was to assess the association of dipyridamole side effects with hemodynamic oscillations, scanning results and ECG findings. Materials & Methods: Overlay, 590 cases referred to nuclear medicine center for myocardial perfusion imaging were evaluated for the adverse effects of dipyridamole concurrent with low level of exercise. Before and during dipyridamole infusion, the patients' vital symptoms, electrocardiogram, hear rate (HR), systolic blood pressure (SBP) and diastolic blood pressure (DBP) were monitored; all patients underwent stress/rest 99mTc‐sestamibi GSPECT using a 2‐day protocol. Results: Eighty‐eight patients (14.9%) showed at least one sort of undesired symptom during dipyridamole infusion; abnormal ECG and scan was observed in 32.3% and 48.6% of cases, respectively. There were significant differences between pre and post‐infusion HR, pre‐infusion SBP and post‐infusion DBP among patients with or without untoward symptoms; whereas no significant difference was observed in any of the hemodynamic parameters between patients with normal and abnormal ECG or myocardial perfusion imaging. Conclusion: This study demonstrated a correlation between hemodynamic variables and patients’ undesired symptoms but not with either imaging findings or ECG.
