Investigation of myocardial metabolism for the study of the pathophysiology of cardiac disease

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle


Many variables, including food ingestion, circulating hormone, and the cardiac work load, affect myocardial metabolism. Important changes in myocardial metabolism are associated with myocardial ischemia. The study of myocardial metabolism by means of different invasive and noninvasive techniques allows a better understanding of both cardiac physiology and pathophysiology in humans.
