- Transplantation of progenitor cells after reperfused acute myocardial infarction: evaluation of perfusion and myocardial viability with FDG-PET and thallium SPECT. D�bert, Natascha; Britten, Martina; Assmus, Birgit; Berner, Uwe; Menzel, Christian; Lehmann, Ralf; Hamscho, Nadja; Sch�chinger, Volker; Dimmeler, Stefanie; Zeiher, Andreas M.; Gr�nwald, Frank // European Journal of Nuclear Medicine & Molecular Imaging;2004, Vol. 31 Issue 8, p1146
Clinical outcome after myocardial infarction depends on the extent of irreversibly damaged myocardium. Implantation of bone marrow-/circulating blood-derived progenitor cells has been shown to improve contractile cardiac function after myocardial infarction in both experimental and initial...
