UNLABELLED This study assesses regional differences in myocardial blood flow and 18F-fluorodeoxyglucose (FDG) retention in acutely stunned porcine myocardium. METHODS Two groups of swine were used for these studies. In Group 1, 15 animals underwent stunning induced by 20 min of myocardial ischemia followed by reperfusion. Regional function was measured with ultrasonic crystals and myocardial blood flows were quantitated with radiolabeled microspheres. Within 2 hr postischemia, myocardial… CONTINUE READING
