Technetium-labeled heparin kinetics studies were undertaken in 12 hemodialyzed patients, where heparin was used over a long term (1 to 10 years) for anticoagulation of the extracorporeal circuit. The 99mTc-heparin (99mTc VECTOSCINT, Solabco Nuclear, Coutras, France) used has a 10 mCi activity and a labeling efficiency of more than 95%. Two healthy subjects… CONTINUE READING
