Comparative analysis of parametric images in patients with dilated cardiomyopathy and coronary heart disease by radionuclide ventriculography



Comparative analysis of parametric images in patients with dilated cardiomyopathy and coronary heart disease by radionuclide ventriculography



Terapevticheskii Arkhiv 62(12): 24-28



After equiponderant radionuclide ventriculography the parametric images (phasic and amplitude) of heart function were estimated in 20 patients with dilated cardiomyopathy and in 17 patients with coronary heart disease associated with cardiomegaly. The patients with dilated cardiomyopathy and those with coronary heart disease showed principal differences in local disturbances of the amplitude of movements of left ventricle myocardium walls. While assessing synchronism of myocardial contraction in the patients with dilated cardiomyopathy the presence of the zones of myocardial asynchronism appeared to be a suggestive sign. At the same time the phenomena of asynchronism were not directly connected with impairment of heart conduction and became aggravated as dilatation of the left ventricle progressed, being often coupled with the ECG signs of cicatrical alterations in the myocardium, which came on the phasic images in the form of dyssynergia areas.
