[111Indium-thrombocyte scintigraphy and percutaneous transluminal dilatation (angioplasty) of supra-aortic vascular stenoses. A new method for deciding therapy and for follow-up control].

Abstract

Scintigraphy with 111indium-marked autologous platelets has been used during percutaneous transluminal dilatation of supra-aortic arterial stenoses; there were 14 successful dilatations and one attempted dilatation. The material consisted of nine stenoses of the internal carotid artery, two stenoses at the origin of the vertebral artery and four stenoses of the first part of the left subclavian artery. Deposition of thrombi could be demonstrated by scintigraphy, both before and after catheter dilatation. The value of this method for deciding on the type of treatment and for observing the course of percutaneous dilatation of cerebral vessels is discussed.
