Abstract

We investigated the serial changes in cerebral metabolites in 34 patients with congestive heart failure before and 2 and 12 months after heart transplantation, using proton magnetic resonance spectroscopy. Regional differences were detected in the recovery of cerebral metabolites after the heart transplantation procedure.
