In order to characterize postinfarction ischemia, 68 patients were studied by 24 hours Holter-monitoring and exercise testing. Twenty-four (35%) patients in Holter-monitoring and 26 (38%) in exercise testing had transient ischemic episodes. A significant coefficient of agreement was found between both tests. Nineteen (79%) of the patients had only silent(More)
The dual-isotope technique (rest 201Tl and stress 99mTc-sestamibi) is useful to assess myocardial perfusion in coronary disease patients. 99mTc-labeled tetrofosmin is a radiopharmaceutical whose characteristics are similar to sestamibi. Thus, we decided to use it to detect reversible myocardial hypoperfusion in patients with a background of myocardial(More)
