[Evaluation of the left ventricular function by myocardial scintigram and radionuclide angiocardiography with technetium-99m pyrophosphate in patients with acute myocardial infarct (author's transl)].


Myocardial scintigrams with 99mTc-pyrophosphate (PYP) were performed in 30 patients with acute myocardial infarct (AMI) and positive scintigrams were obtained in the 24 patients. In 12 patients the size of the AMI estimated from the scintigram with 99mTc-PYP was compared with the pulmonary capillary wedge pressure (PCWP). In the 7 patients with PCWP below… (More)
