To investigate the suitability of diagnostic 6F catheters for coronary angiographic measures in the clinical setting, we determined the relative accuracy and reproducibility of the measures obtained with these catheters as scaling devices in 59 stenoses. Comparison was made with duplicate injections, obtained before angioplasty, using an 8F guiding catheter as scaling device. Intra- and interobserver variability was evaluated in 15 stenoses. The coefficient of variation averaged 18.3% for the minimal lumen diameter, 10.4% for the percent stenosis, and only 7.4% for the reference diameter. Reproducibility of angiographic measures done with the 6F catheter was similar to that obtained with the 8F catheter, although accuracy was lower with the 6F for the measurement of reference diameter. Thus, quantitative coronary angiography (QCA) measures derived from routine diagnostic angiograms may be suitable for determination of reference diameter, allowing enough precision for determination of the size of a coronary device for intervention, but these measures may lack accuracy for precise determination of minimum diameter and percent stenosis, making their use questionable in studies looking at individual changes in coronary stenosis dimensions.

Spinal cord stimulation (SCS) can relieve symptoms in patients with severe angina pectoris refractory to conventional medical or surgical therapy. This symptomatic improvement may result from decreased myocardial ischemia. To test this hypothesis, positron emission tomography (PET) and potassium-38 as a flow tracer were used in 8 patients for the quantitative evaluation of regional myocardial perfusion at rest and after exercise, before and during SCS. Potassium uptake was evaluated as myocardial clearance (flow times net extraction) in ml/min/100 g. Tomographic segments were categorized as nonaffected and affected on the basis of the absence or presence of arterial stenosis on coronary angiography and on the basis of thallium scintigraphic data. In nonaffected segments, before SCS, regional myocardial clearance significantly increased from rest (28 +/- 4) to exercise (47 +/- 13 clearance units; p less than 0.004). A similar increase occurred after SCS. In affected segments, before SCS, regional myocardial clearance barely increased (p = 0.065) from rest (26 +/- 6) to exercise (33 less than or equal to 12). In comparison, after SCS, the resting regional myocardial clearance was slightly elevated (29 +/- 8) reflecting an increased double product, but did not increase (p = 0.192) with exercise (34 +/- 12). However, the magnitude and duration of ST-segment depression decreased during treatment with SCS. Anginal pain occurred in all patients during control exercise, but was attenuated in all but one with SCS. These results indicate that SCS improves exercise-induced angina and electrocardiographic signs of ischemia but this influence does not appear to be mediated by changes in regional myocardial perfusion.

99mTc-MIBI, a new myocardial perfusion agent, is a technetium labeled isonitrile derivative. We have taken advantage of the physical characteristics of 99mTc to combine at rest, post infarction, ventricular function studies with analysis of perfusion. We have studied at rest and at stress, 22 patients with coronary artery disease selected on the basis of an abnormal coronary angiogram or on the basis of a positive exercise ECG stress test for symptomatic angina. We have also studied, at rest only, 20 patients with a previous myocardial infarction. A comparative thallium planar scintigraphy was obtained for all patients. The sensitivity of 99mTc-MIBI scintigraphy for detecting individual vessel lesions at stress was 88% as compared with 83% for 201Tl. Sensitivity was higher in patients with previous myocardial infarction (93% for the 2 isotopes) than in patients without (85% for 99mTc-MIBI versus 81% for 201Tl). Segmental myocardial correspondence between 99mTc-MIBI and 201Tl was very close (92%). The overall sensitivity for the detection of acute myocardial infarction reached respectively 91% for 99mTc MIBI and 87% for 201Tl. The specificity in the regions corresponding to arteries not involved was excellent for both tracers as we did not observe any false positive result. This is important information but it does not correspond to the specificity to detect coronary artery disease in the overall patient population. The correlation between first pass left ventricular ejection fraction obtained with 99mTc-MIBI and equilibrium left ventricular ejection fraction obtained with 99mTc red cells was excellent (r = 0.96). It was not as good but was still satisfactory for the right ventricle (r = 0.75).(ABSTRACT TRUNCATED AT 250 WORDS) [less ▲]
