The results of a follow-up study (mean 42 months after infarction) of 27 patients with conservatively treated left ventricular aneurysms showed: 1. 3/27 patients died of sudden death. Only one of these three could be predicted (ventricular fibrillation during exercise). 2. 3/24 remaining patients developed congestive heart failure. This could be predicted(More)
Ecg (at rest and during exercise) was compared to Thallium-201 myocardial perfusion imaging (at rest and after exercise) in 65 patients with coronary heart disease (myocardial infarction in 53 patients) and angina pectoris. These results were compared to coronary angiography and left ventricular angiography. Group I: (48 patients, comparison of Ecg at rest(More)
In 13 male patients (mean age 49.1 years) with chronic ischemic coronary heart disease (7 transmural and 2 intramural myocardial infarctions), angina pectoris and signs of ischemia during exercise an intravenous streptokinase therapy was performed. The treatment was installed 18.9 months after infarction or after onset of angina pectoris. Before and after(More)
The "return to work"-rate of 4 groups of patients with myocardial infarction (MI) is evaluated (all coronary angiography): Group 1: 314 patients after aorto-coronary bypass operation: mean age 50.5 years. Time after infarction 28 months, after surgery 18 months. The social fate of 52% were not yet decided. 20% got pension, 25% returned to work. Group 2: 86(More)
We examined 221 patients with postmyocardial infarctions 8 weeks after MI using radionuclide ventriculography (RNVA) at rest (EFR) and during supine submaximal exercise (delta EF). Mortality rates were evaluated 2 1/2 and 3 1/2 years later by interviewing patients and/or their homephysicians. Sixteen patients were dead (6.7%) 2 1/2 years after MI, 28(More)
