Indium-111 antimyosin (InAM) scintigraphy was performed in 17 patients with acute myocardial infarction (on 15 +/- 6 days from the onset). The degree of myocardial uptake was classified into 3 groups. They were ranged from low intensity as in bone marrow to high intensity as in liver. All of 17 cases showed positive myocardial uptake including low(More)
A new extensive operative technique with several points of important surgical significance was applied to six patients with a single or common ventricle in whom the types of anomalies consisted of common ventricle, Van Praagh's type C, in one instance and single ventricle, Van Praagh's type A and B, in five instances. The important points of this technique(More)
Using exercise stress thallium (Tl)-201 SPECT, we studied 11 patients with Syndrome X who had anginal pain and ischemic ECG change during exercise in spite of angiographically normal coronary artery. In three patients, the initial stress image showed mild hypoperfusion in the area of ST segment depression, but the delayed image showed complete or incomplete(More)
To elucidate changes with time in T1-201 scintigraphy after coronary revascularization, T1-201 stress myocardial scintigraphy was performed at least twice during the follow-up period (from one to 12 months) in 58 patients with ischemic heart disease (12 with angina, and 46 with myocardial infarction) who had undergone PTCA or A-C bypass surgery. The(More)
We have devised a new operative procedure called atrial autotransplantation for transposition of the great vessels and applied it in 7 cases. Results were satisfactory except for one death. The bais of this technique was the experiment, using 70 dogs, in which the relationship of separation of the atrial wall and atrial septum to the development of(More)
Stimulated whole saliva was collected from 118 subjects: 36 were not receiving digitalis; 40 received digitalis but were nontoxic; 14 were digitalis-toxic; 24 had impaired renal function; and four subjects were followed during the administration of digitalis. Saliva calcium and potassium products in the digitalis-toxic group were significantly higher than(More)
A new rapid slide agglutination test (Amniostat-FLM/AFLM) for amniotic fluid phosphatidylglycerol has been developed. One hundred ninety-three samples of amniotic fluid were tested for lecithin/sphingomyelin (L/S) ratio and phosphatidylglycerol by thin-layer chromatography and fluorescence polarization and compared with the AFLM. All four tests agreed in(More)
Myocardial imaging using beta-methyl-p-(123I)-iodophenylpentadecanoic acid (BMIPP) was performed in 11 patients with acute myocardial infarction. The left ventricular images were divided into 12 segments, and myocardial imagings with BMIPP were compared with coronary angiography (CAG), thallium-201 myocardial scintigraphy (TL) and wall motion obtained by(More)
