UNLABELLED We evaluated serial changes in cardiac sympathetic nerve distribution using 123I-metaiodobenzylguanidine (123I-MIBG) after the Maze procedure. The Maze procedure, in which multiple incisions are made in the atrium, has been concomitantly performed with mitral valve (MV) surgery in an attempt to eliminate atrial fibrillation (AF). Although attenuation of the sinoatrial node response to exercise and a reduction of left ventricular function (left ventricular ejection fraction [LVEF]) in… CONTINUE READING
