Previous studies have documented a quantitative relation between alterations in transmural myocardial blood flow and body surface electrocardiographic distributions during rapid atrial pacing after chronic occlusion of the left circumflex coronary artery (LCx). Because other studies have described functional differences between the left anterior descending (LAD) and the LCx perfusion beds, we tested the hypothesis that these two territories exhibit quantitative differences in their responses to demand-dependent myocardial ischemia. To do so, 25 sedated dogs were studied 3 weeks after implantation of an ameroid constrictor around the proximal LCx (15 dogs, group I) or the LAD (group II). Oxygen demand was increased by rapid atrial pacing at rates of 90 to 210 beats/min, myocardial blood flow was measured by serial injections of radiolabeled microspheres, and the electrocardiographic consequences were evaluated by isopotential body surface mapping. Endocardial flows and the endocardial/epicardial flow ratio...

AIM To provide an update of current practice in iliac artery intervention in the UK. MATERIALS AND METHODS Ninety-nine interventional units across the UK completed online submission forms for iliac angioplasty and stent procedures between 2011 and 2014 (inclusive) for the British Iliac Angioplasty and Stenting (BIAS) IV registry. RESULTS Data for 8,294 procedures were submitted during the study period. A total of 12,253 iliac segments were treated in 10,311 legs. The commonest indication was cla...

The purpose of this report is to provide revised standards and guidelines for the exercise testing and training of individuals who are free from clinical manifestations of cardiovascular disease and those with known cardiovascular disease. These guidelines are intended for physicians, nurses, exercise physiologists, specialists, technologists, and other healthcare professionals involved in exercise testing and training of these populations. This report is in accord with the “Statement on Exercis...

OBJECTIVE: The purpose of this study was to evaluate the appropriate parameters of a filter and of subsets (S) and iterations (I) of the ordered-subset expectation maximization (OSEM) algorithm in 11C-acetate PET. METHODS: A Hanning filter (HF) and a Gaussian filter (GF) were selected for filtered back-projection (FBP) and the OSEM algorithm, respectively. After evaluation of the optimal HF size, the GF size was optimized using healthy volunteers (HV). Myocardial blood flow (MBF) and oxygen cons...

Compared with standard test criteria, simple heart rate (HR) adjustment of ST depression during exercise electrocardiography can improve the identification and assessment of underlying coronary artery disease. Since heart rate during exercise drives progressive ST segment depression in the presence of coronary obstruction that limits flow reserve, the ST/HR index controls for the increasing metabolic severity of ischemia that accompanies exercise. Improvement of exercise test sensitivity with th...

Exercise testing remains the most widely accessible and relatively inexpensive method for initial evaluation of suspected coronary disease and for evaluation of its severity.1–3 Clinical usefulness has been limited, however, by poor sensitivity of standard ST-segment depression criteria for assessment of anatomic and functional coronary disease severity and for prediction of risk.1,2,4–6 Recent data make it clear that symptomatic obstructive plaques that typically result in exercise-mediated isc...

Abstract —To clarify the source of electrocardiographic ST depression associated with ischemia, a sheep model of subendocardial ischemia was developed in which simultaneous epicardial and endocardial ST potentials were mapped, and a computer model using the bidomain technique was developed to explain the results. To produce ischemia in different territories of the myocardium in the same animal, the left anterior descending coronary artery and left circumflex coronary artery were partially constr...

SUMMARY 1. We evaluated the use of non-radioactive fluorescent-labelled microspheres (FM) for the measurement of regional myocardial blood flow (RMBF) in an ischaemic sheep model. 2. Injection of FM directly into the coronary artery was compared with left atrial injection. There was a good correlation in the measurement of RMBF between these two injection methods (r = 0.92; n= 107 data points). Injection into the coronary artery requires less FM (one twentieth of that required by atrial injectio...
