BACKGROUND/AIM The coronary angiography provides information on the anatomical state of the coronary tree, while myocardial perfusion scintigraphy (MPI) facilitates the evaluation of the grade of ischaemia that a particular stenosis produces. The purpose of MPI is to detect the coronary stenosis that provokes the ischaemia and is termed the "culprit(More)
BACKGROUND/AIM Treadmill test combined with myocardial perfusion scintigraphy (MPS) is a commonly used technique in the assessment of coronary artery disease. Many patients who cannot adequately perform exercise stress testing may nevertheless undergo pharmacological tests, most commonly with the vasodilator agents (adenosine and dipyridamole), as well as(More)
BACKGROUND/AIM To present the results of percutaneous transluminal coronary angioplasty (PTCA) in the treatment of the patients with acute right ventricle myocardial infarction (ARVMI), with adjuvant analyses of the obtained results in the period of five years (2000-2004). METHODS Thrombolytic therapy and the primary percutaneous transluminal coronary(More)
UNLABELLED The treadmill test combined with myocardial perfusion imaging (MPI) is a commonly used technique in the assessment of coronary artery disease (CAD). However, there is a group of patients who may not be able to undergo the treadmill test. Pharmacologic stress testing is increasingly utilized for stress perfusion imaging and currently accounts for(More)
BACKGROUND Predilection site for the acute myocardial infarction of the right ventricle, (AMI-RV) is the upper third of the right coronary artery and for this reason such an infarction is followed by numerous complications, primarily by conduction disorders and very often by sudden and rapid cardiogenic shock development. METHODS Primary percutaneous(More)
Myocardial scintigraphy was performed using 99m-Tc-pyrophosphate in 50 patients with suspected coexisting right ventricular and left inferior ventricular heart infarction and in 50 patients with left inferior ventricular infraction only. In all survived patients additional selective coronarography was performed and in all died patients autopsy was(More)
BACKGROUND/AIM Treadmill test combined with myocardial perfusion scintigraphy (MPS) is a commonly used technique in the assessment of coronary artery disease. There are many patients, however, who may not be able to undergo treadmill test. Such patients would benefit from pharmacological stress procedures combined with MPS. The most commonly used(More)
BACKGROUND The most important predictors of subsequent patients outcome after acute myocardial infarction (AIM) are infarct size, left ventricular ejection fraction, left ventricular volumes and presence and extent of residual myocardial ischemia. All of these variables can be directly determined through scintigraphic approaches. The presence and extent of(More)
