Abstract

A 75-year-old woman who had previously been diagnosed with Bland-White-Garland syndrome was admitted to our hospital for acute decompensated heart failure (ADHF). Following her recovery from ADHF, pharmacologic stress myocardial scintigraphy revealed myocardial ischemia in the basal anterior area of the left ventricle. Moreover, myocardial scintigraphy showed the improvement of the myocardial ischemia after 6 months of nicorandil administration.
