In order to evaluate the potential of balloon occlusion during coronary angioplasty as a model of myocardial ischaemia in man we have measured coronary sinus blood flow (CSBF), myocardial oxygen consumption (MVO2), lactate extraction (LER) and electrocardiographic changes in 11 patients undergoing left anterior descending artery (LAD) angioplasty. Baseline measurements were made before balloon crossing and between inflations. Four consecutive inflations each of 60 s duration were made; 5 min… CONTINUE READING
