ABSTRACT
The availability of a relatively small computer with programming providing multiple-gated acquisition capability (MUGA) permits the measurement of ejection fraction and evaluation of ventricular wall motion without the need for invasive techniques. It is probable that the various nitrates available-nitroglycerin. PETN. and isosorbide dinitrate-have somewhat different hemodynamic effects and that the radionuclide technique can assist in determining these differences and may help to predict which agents might be most appropriate in specific situations.

    Si-pentaerythritol tetranitrate (PETN), Si[CHONO], is a silicon analog of the widely used explosive PETN, C[CHONO]. Si-PETN is extremely sensitive to impact, much more so than PETN. This was attributed by Liu et al. to Si-PETN having a much lower activation barrier to decomposition, via a facile...
