The value of dobutamine echocardiography and resting thallium-201 scintigraphy to predict reversal of regional left ventricular wall motion dysfunction after revascularization in patients with chronic coronary artery disease was assessed. Improvement in wall motion during dobutamine echocardiography and normal or mildly decreased uptake on thallium-201… CONTINUE READING
