BACKGROUND Whether minimal microvascular resistance of the myocardium is affected by the presence of an epicardial stenosis is controversial. Recently, an index of microcirculatory resistance (IMR) was developed that is based on combined measurements of distal coronary pressure and thermodilution-derived mean transit time. In normal coronary arteries, IMR(More)
With the development of clinical diagnostic techniques to investigate the coronary circulation in conscious humans, the in vitro validation of such newly developed techniques is of major importance. The aim of this study was to develop an in vitro model that is able to mimic the coronary circulation in such a way that coronary pressure and flow signals(More)
