Radionuclide Estimation of Left Vetricle Myocardial Contractility in Patients with Chronic Heart Failure and Post-Infarction Cardiosclerosis

Z. D. Rasulova, U. K. Kamilova, M. M. Khodjibekova


Acute myocardial infarction (MI) is an important risk factor for the chronic heart failure (CHF). Twenty-five ischemic heart disease (IHD) male patients with post-infarction cardiosclerosis (PICS) aged 40 to 60 (at a mean age of 52,8±1,3 years) with MI duration from 6 months to 5 years were examined. Intensification of degree of CHF in IHD patients with PICS according to the findings of echocardiography and radioisotope ventriculography (RGV) was accompanied by a decreased myocardial contractility. RVG using sectoral analysis occurred to be an informative method in the evaluation of the myocardial contractility of the left ventricle, its reserve potentials in IHD patients with PICS complicated by CHF. It permits to optimize the diagnosis and treatment of CHF patients with PICS.
