According to the current concept, anginal pain results from stimulation of sympathetic nerves within the heart. In this study, we evaluated the role of cardiac adrenergic denervation in exercise-induced angina pectoris in 15 men with recent acute myocardial infarction. Before discharge from the hospital, the patients were subjected to a symptom-limited exercise test. Three months after the infarction, cardiac scintigraphic studies using I-123 metaiodobenzylguanidine (MIBG), I-123… CONTINUE READING
