To clarify the effect of left ventricular (LV) diastolic pressure on the coronary pressure-flow relation in humans, the instantaneous diastolic coronary pressure-Doppler flow velocity relation was analyzed at rest and during papaverine-induced maximal vasodilation in 15 patients with angiographically normal coronary arteries. The values for slope (alpha PF) and zero-flow pressure intercept (Pzf index) of the instantaneous diastolic coronary pressure-flow velocity relation were obtained by a… CONTINUE READING
