UNLABELLED Alterations of cardiac sympathetic innervation are likely to contribute to fatal outcomes in patients with heart failure. These alterations can be evaluated noninvasively by 123I-metaiodoben-zylguanidine (MIBG) imaging. METHODS The hypothesis that impaired cardiac sympathetic innervation, as assessed using MIBG imaging, is related to adverse outcomes was tested in 112 patients with heart failure resulting from idiopathic cardiomyopathy. Main inclusion criteria were New York Heart… CONTINUE READING
