Differences in Thallium-201 uptake in reperfused and nonreperfused myocardial infarction.


The respective importance of flow and cellular viability in determining initial myocardial thallium uptake was studied in reperfused and nonreperfused experimental myocardial infarction. Open-chest dogs were subjected to permanent coronary artery occlusion of 70-minute (n = 3) or 5-hour duration (n = 5), or to a 3-hour temporary occlusion followed by reflow… (More)
