Myocardial Viability in Ischemic Syndromes
Currently cardiologists face a substantial growth in the number of patients with congestive heart failure, a clinical syndrome with a poor prognosis. In the United States, more than 3 million people suffer from heart failure and more than 100,000 die from end-stage congestive heart failure annually. In the Netherlands the prevalence of heart failure is currently 4 % and rises firmly in the elderly.
