Abstract
This study was part of an open multicenter protocol to evaluate the value of tomographic myocardial perfusion imaging with sestamibi and thallium-201 (TI-201) in the detection of ischemic but viable myocardium in chronic stable coronary artery disease patients with left ventricular dysfunction. A series of 20 patients (pts) with g 75% coronary artery stenosis and wall motion abnormality, who were scheduled for percutaneous transluminal coronary angioplasty (PTCA) and had a g 4-week old myocardial infarction were included. All pts underwent (a) within 21 days before PTCA, a separate-day rest and stress sestamibi study, a same-day stress, redistribution and 4-hour...
