The purpose of this study was to measure left ventricular myocardial perfusion quantitatively (in ml/100g/min) in patients with clinical indication for coronary dilatation/stenting,
coronary bypass surgery or aortic valve replacement before and after therapeutic procedures to determine alterations in myocardial perfusion (primary outcome measure).
The secondary outcome measure was the assessment and correlation analysis of physiological parameters possibly influencing myocardial perfusion such as heart rate (HR),
systolic blood pressure (SBP) and rate pressure product (RPP) and the examination of ventricular parameters that may show an alteration after surgical treatment such as left ventricular muscle mass (LVMM) or end diastolic volume (EDV).
