Abstract
Coronary artery disease (CAD) is a significant cause of morbidity and mortality in modern societies. The association between genetic markers and CAD is still poorly understood. In this study, we evaluated the effect of five genetic variants: Factor V Leiden (FV:c.1691G>A) (rs6025), Factor II prothrombin (FII:c.20210G>A; rs1799963), plasminogen activator inhibitor 1 (PAI-1) -675(4G/5G; SERPINE1:g.4329_4330insG; rs34857375), β-fibrinogen -455G>A (FGB:c.4577G>A; rs1800790) and Factor XIII (F13A1:c.103G>T; rs5985) on myocardial perfusion. We examined 523 patients using exercise-rest myocardial perfusion single photon emission computed tomography, where the summed stress score (SSS), summed rest score and summed difference score (SDS) indexes, were calculated. In order to examine the independent prognostic ability of genotype on SSS and SDS, multiple linear regression models were used. It was found that Factor V Leiden, Factor XIII, β-fibrinogen and PAI-1 genotypes were independent prognostic predictors of SSS and SDS with Factor XIII exhibiting the strongest association. Moreover, Factor II prothrombin proved an independent prognostic predictor of SSS. Our study provides the first evidence of an association between these polymorphisms and myocardial perfusion, suggesting that the process of coronary artery disease and also patients' prognosis, may be modified by the FV:c.1691G>A, FII:c.20210G>A, PAI-1 -675 (4G/5G), β-fibrinogen FGB:c.4577G>A and F13A1:c.103G>T genotypes.

    To evaluate the incremental prognostic value of (99m)Tc-tetrofosmin early poststress lung/heart ratio (eLHR) and to assess the optimal cut-off value. We studied 503 patients (aged 61.3 years/SD = 8.6 years, 302 men) with stress/rest (99m)Tc-tetrofosmin myocardial gated-single photon emission computed tomography and coronary angiography. To evaluate myocardial ischemia, the summed stress score,... [Show full abstract]

      The main drawback of scintimammography with conventional gamma cameras is the large distance between detector and breast, which limits imaging performance and adds significant background noise from the heart and other organs. These limitations can be minimized by dedicated gamma cameras placed in tight contact with the breast. The purpose of this study was to determine the lowest... [Show full abstract]

        Objectives: The aim of this study was to evaluate the contribution of brain perfusion single-photon emission computed tomography (SPECT) studies with mapping of Brodmann areas (BAs) in the differential diagnosis between Alzheimer's disease (AD) and frontotemporal degeneration (FTLD) syndromes. Methods: Thirty-nine patients with AD and 73 patients with FTLD syndromes [behavioural variant... [Show full abstract]
