Early therapeutic effects of adaptive servo-ventilation on cardiac sympathetic nervous function in patients with heart failure evaluated using a combination of 11C-HED PET and 123I-MIBG SPECT

Rationale Adaptive servo-ventilation (ASV), a novel respiratory support therapy for sleep disorders, may improve cardiac function in heart failure (HF). However, the reasons that ASV improves cardiac function have not been fully studied especially in sympathetic nervous function (SNF). The purpose of the present study was to investigate the effects of ASV therapy on cardiac SNF...

The effects of 18-h fasting with low-carbohydrate diet preparation on suppressed physiological myocardial 18F-fluorodeoxyglucose (FDG) uptake and possible minimal effects of unfractionated heparin use in patients with suspected cardiac involvement sarcoidosis

Background 18F-fluorodeoxyglucose (FDG) PET plays an important role in the detection of cardiac involvement sarcoidosis (CS). However, diffuse left ventricle (LV) wall uptake sometimes makes it difficult to distinguish between positive uptake and physiological uptake. The aims of this study were to evaluate the effects of 18-h fasting with low-carbohydrate diet (LCD) vs a minimum...
