Abstract

The value of dobutamine echocardiography and resting thallium-2-1 scintigraphy to predict reversal of regional left ventricular wall motion dysfunction after revascularization in patients with chronic coronary artery disease was assessed. Improvement in wall motion during dobutamine echocardiography and normal or mildly decreased uptake on thallium-201 scanning are strong predictors of reversible left ventricular dysfunction. Dobutamine echocardiography and resting thallium-201 scanning are simple and safe methods of assessing hibernating myocardium.
