Myocardial indium-111 antimyosin uptake in patients with idiopathic dilated cardiomyopathy: its relation to haemodynamics, histomorphometry, myocardial enteroviral infection, and clinical course.

Abstract

The myocardial uptake of indium-111 antimyosin indicates the presence of ongoing myocyte damage. To evaluate the role of this finding in patients with idiopathic dilated cardiomyopathy (IDC), 36 patients were studied by planar and SPECT antimyosin imaging. The diagnosis of IDC was based on coronary angiography and left ventricular endomyocardial biopsy. The… (More)
