[Cardiac energy metabolism in heart valve diseases with 31P MR spectroscopy]

Abstract:

PURPOSE: Heart valve disease combined with left ventricular hypertrophy leads to derangements in cardiac energy metabolism, which can be detected non-invasively by 31P-MR-spectroscopy. The purpose of the present study was to examine whether the derangements in cardiac metabolism are reversible after surgical valve replacement. PATIENTS AND METHODS: 10 healthy volunteers and 10 patients with aortic stenosis (pressure gradients > 60 mmHg) were included. For assessment of energy metabolism, 3...
