Effects of infusion of glucose-insulin-potassium on myocardial function after a recent myocardial infarction.

Abstract

UNLABELLED We studied the effects of glucose, insulin, and KCl infusion (GIK), on regional myocardial perfusion and function by 99m-Tc-tetrofosmin-gated SPECT. METHODS We studied 21 male patients with their first uncomplicated acute myocardial infarction (AMI). All patients underwent a rest and submaximal stress before and after 24-hour infusion of GIK… (More)
