OBJECTIVE To define prevalence, pathophysiology and relation to thrombolytic therapy of reverse redistribution (appearance of a new, or worsening of an existing, scintigraphic defect on 4 h delayed images compared with the stress thallium image). DESIGN Randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled trial. SETTING Referral centre. PATIENTS Sixty-three patients with acute myocardial infarction. INTERVENTIONS Tomographic exercise thallium scintigraphy, radionuclide angiography, and… CONTINUE READING
