  1. Gallium-67 scintigraphy in myocarditis. A review; Gal-67 w diagnostyce zapalenia miesnia sercowego

    Wojnicz, R. [Slaskie Centrum Chorob Serca, Zabrze (Poland); Kozielska, E.; Wodniecki, J.; Wycisk, A. [Slaska Akademia Medyczna, Katowice (Poland)


    Gallium-67 imaging is a non-invasive technique with a good sensitivity for the diagnosis of inflammatory heart disease. Due to the affinity with the mononuclear cell infiltration, {sup 67}Ga enables visualize the moderate and severe myocardial inflammation. This could be used as a screening test, with a high sensitivity and low cost, to identify the patients for endomyocardial biopsy. Furthermore, in some patients diagnosed with other non-invasive techniques such as echocardiography or MRI, the gallium-67 imaging may be useful to verify clinical diagnosis.

  2. The role of arterial vascularity in pathogenesis of infected pseudoarthrosis of the lower leg; Rola zaburzen ukrwienia tetniczego w patogenezie zakazonych stawow rzekomych goleni

    Konarski, K. [Szpital im. J. Jonstona, Lublin (Poland)


    A series of 250 femoral arteriographies performed in patients with leg pseudoarthrosis served to asses condition of arteries of the extremity. It was found that vascular injuries contribute significantly to pathogenesis of union disorders in lower leg fractures. (author). 14 refs, 11 figs.

  3. Detection of myocarditis with indium-111-labelled monoclonal antimyosin antibodies. A review; Znaczenie antymiozyn znakowanych indem-111 w diagnostyce zapalenia miesnia sercowego

    Wojnicz, R. [Slaskie Centrum Chorob Serca, Zabrze (Poland)


    Indium-111 labelled monoclonal antimyosin antibody (AMA-In111) is a sensitive immunoscintigraphic agent for detecting of myocyte necrosis. Due to some limitations including low specificity for myocarditis (MCI) and a very high cost of the study, this agent should be used in only part of patients with clinically suspected MCI. Non-invasive and invasive (coronary angiography) diagnostic procedures should precede AMA-In111 scintigraphy in these patients. The utility of AMA-In111 scintigraphy seems to be greatest in following clinical conditions characterized by myocyte necrosis: 1. diagnosis of MCI in patients with myocardial infarction demonstrated to have normal coronary arteries by selective angiography, 2. detection and quantification of anthracycline-induced myocardial damage, 3. assessment of myocardial damage in cardiac rejection after one post-transplant year.
