Abstract
This study was designed to review published data regarding the clinical usefulness of iodine-123-meta-iodobenzyl-guanidine (MIBG) scintigraphy in evaluating the effectiveness of pharmacological treatments in patients with heart failure (HF).
A comprehensive computer literature search of the PubMed/MEDLINE and Embase databases was conducted to find relevant published articles about the clinical usefulness of MIBG scintigraphy in evaluating the effectiveness of pharmacological treatments in patients with HF.
Thirty-three studies, comprising a total sample size of 1124 patients with HF, were included in this review. Main findings of the included studies are presented.
Myocardial innervation imaging using MIBG scintigraphy can be successfully used to assess changes in cardiac sympathetic neuronal function caused by several pharmacological interventions in patients with HF.
