To investigate the clinical usefulness of intracoronary Doppler recordings during percutaneous transluminal coronary angioplasty (PTCA), the changes of intracoronary blood flow velocity during PTCA were assessed in 20 patients with single proximal coronary stenosis, using a Doppler probe end-mounted on the tip of a PTCA catheter. A mean of 4 inflations was performed in each patient. Intracoronary velocities were measured before and after each inflation and during peak reactive hyperemia after… Expand
Doppler Flow Velocity Measurements During Coronary Angioplasty
TLDR
Prestenotic and poststenotic measurements of coronary artery flow velocity differed significantly before and after PTCA and offer the potential for estimating both the hemodynamic relevance of coronary arteries stenoses and success of P TCA. Expand
Noninvasive assessment of coronary flow dynamics before and after coronary angioplasty using transesophageal Doppler.
TLDR
Whether transesophageal Doppler may detect coronary flow velocity changes in patients undergoing angioplasty for left anterior descending artery stenosis and whether this technique may help to evaluate non-invasively the results of the procedure is tested. Expand
Maximal myocardial perfusion by videodensitometry in the assessment of the early and late results of coronary angioplasty: relationship with coronary artery measurements and left ventricular function at rest.
TLDR
The measurement of minimal luminal diameter remains a more practical assessment of the results of the intervention as the improvement of myocardial perfusion may give more information than coronary artery dimensions of the early recovery of left ventricular function. Expand

TLDR
Measurement of blood flow velocity, flow reserve, and the phasic diastolic/systolic velocity ratio in the distal coronary artery has been performed following various interventional procedures utilizing a low profile Doppler angioplasty guidewire to prove useful in clinical decision making. Expand
Coronary blood flow velocities during rotational atherectomy.
TLDR
Doppler derived distal coronary blood flow velocities increased following rotational ablation and adjunctive balloon angioplasty, with resolution of transstenotic velocity gradient, and changes in distal phasic velocity pattern and coronary flow reserve were not useful in the assessment of the functional outcome. Expand
Intracoronary blood flow velocity, reactive hyperemia and coronary blood flow reserve during and following PTCA
TLDR
Both techniques are compared in the setting of PTCA, and the pharmacologically induced vasodilation after intracoronary papaverine with reactive hyperemia following transluminal occlusion is compared. Expand
Continuous Monitoring of the Coronary Perfusion during Percutaneous Transluminal Coronary Angioplasty of the Left Anterior Descending Artery
TLDR
Doppler measurements in the coronary sinus are a valuable adjunct to the angiographic assessment of the immediate PTCA result and may provide a suitable online functional monitoring of high risk patients. Expand
Enhancement of coronary reactive hyperemia in patients with ischemic myocardial tolerance during angioplasty
TLDR
Reactive hyperemia was enhanced in patients with ischemic tolerance who showed a reduction of ST elevation in the icECG recorded at the time of the second coronary occlusion, and those who showed no difference in ST elevation between the two occlusions were divided into two groups. Expand
Intracoronary pressure and flow velocity with sensor-tip guidewires: a new methodologic approach for assessment of coronary hemodynamics before and after coronary interventions.
TLDR
Assessment of the changes in coronary blood flow velocity observed with a Doppler-tipped angioplasty guidewire in 35 patients undergoing balloon angiopLasty finds merits and pitfalls of several flow velocity parameters. Expand
Evaluation of Successful PTCA by Transstenotic Flow Velocity Ratios
TLDR
Improvement of transstenotic Doppler flow velocity ratios following PTCA is determined and the possible impact on restenosis during follow-up control angiog raphy three months later is investigated. Expand

Normalization of coronary flow reserve by percutaneous transluminal coronary angioplasty.
TLDR
Fifteen patients undergoing routine follow-up angiography 5 months after successful percutaneous transluminal coronary angioplasty without angina and with normal exercise thallium scintigraphy were selected for analysis and coronary flow reserve was restored to normal in 11 of 15 patients. Expand
Changes in cross-sectional area of the coronary lumen in the six months after angioplasty: a quantitative analysis of the variable response to percutaneous transluminal angioplasty.
TLDR
Clinical, hemodynamic, and angiographic characteristics immediately after PTCA were not predictive of MCSA of the lumen at follow-up; based on these quantitative methods, it is found that successful angioplasty is associated with about a three-fold increase in the MCsa of the lesion. Expand
Assessment of percutaneous transluminal coronary angioplasty by quantitative coronary angiography: diameter versus densitometric area measurements.
TLDR
Cineangiograms of 138 patients who underwent percutaneous transluminal coronary angioplasty were analyzed and it is suggested that discrepancies in results after PTCA can be accounted for by asymmetric morphologic changes in luminal cross section, which cannot be assessed accurately from diameter measurements in a single-plane view.

Values and limitations of transstenotic pressure gradients measured during percutaneous coronary angioplasty.
TLDR
Flow in the great cardiac vein was measured in 13 patients before and/or after angioplasty of a proximal left anterior descending stenosis, not filled by collaterals, to assess the values and limitations of the in vivo measurements of the pressure gradient versus the calculated values. Expand
Transluminal, subselective measurement of coronary artery blood flow velocity and vasodilator reserve in man.

The developed and validated a small Doppler catheter that can subselectively measure phasic coronary blood flow velocity (CBFV) and assessing vasodilator reserve in the catheterization laboratory should facilitate studies of the coronary circulation in man. Expand
Criteria for successful coronary angioplasty as assessed by alterations in coronary vasodilatory reserve.
TLDR
It is proposed that saphenous vein bypass grafts have been shown to increase coronary vasodilatory reserve to at least 1.20, and this physiologic criterion be used to define the success of revascularization by angioplasty. Expand

The increased flow response following injection of contrast media is severly limited by coronary artery stenosis and may provide a useful method for assessing hemodynamically significant stenosis in patients with coronary artery disease. Expand

The 3F Doppler coronary catheter is nonobstructing, steerable and safe, there is an excellent correlation of blood flow velocity with volume collections, and the catheter provides a reliable method of determining coronary blood flow Velocity and coronary vasodilator reserve. Expand

TLDR
In coronary artery disease the consequent reduction in coronary flow reserve can be predicted with reasonable accuracy by quantitative assessment of coronary artery dimensions, based on a theoretical pressure-flow relationship inferred. Expand
