Stress thallium scintigraphies are frequently positive in patients with systemic hypertension (SHT), especially in the presence of left ventricular hypertrophy (LVH). In order to determine whether positive thallium perfusion scans in patients with LVH secondary to SHT and normal coronary angiographies are due to segmentary reduction of coronary reserve(More)
Left ventricular function is studied in cirrhotic patients and in patients with alcoholic hepatitis by means of isotopic ventriculography (Tc99m) both in basal conditions and after the i.v. injection of a somatostatin bolus (250 mcg). The results obtained are compared to those of conventional hemodynamics. Basal ventricular function is normal in both groups(More)
We have performed a study on 28 patients (20 with valve disease and eight with Eisenmenger syndrome) to evaluate the degree of pulmonary hypertension by means of continuous, pulsed and color Doppler, comparing these results with those obtained at cardiac catheterisation. Invasive systolic pulmonary pressure corresponded excellently with the transtricuspid(More)
