Myocardial blood flow, function, and metabolism in repetitive stunning.

Abstract

UNLABELLED Myocardial hibernation refers to a state of persistent left ventricular dysfunction resulting from a chronically reduced blood flow, which is improved or reversed with revascularization. Increased glucose uptake in areas with reduced blood flow at rest on PET has been used successfully to diagnose hibernating myocardium. However, hibernation may… (More)
