Abstract

The clinical work-out of patients undergoing coronary revascularization includes the assessment of myocardial viability. This approach has to be defined in the different classes of patients. The aim of this study was to evaluate the predictive prognostic value of different techniques on outcome following PTCA in patients with moderate left ventricle dysfunction (left ventricle EF > or = 40%).
