Coronary collateral circulation behaviour and myocardial viability in chronic total occlusion treated with coronary angioplasty.

Abstract

AIMS We explored the role of microcirculation integrity following the chronic occlusion of an infarct-related artery to assess the behaviour of collateral circulation during and after reperfusion by coronary angioplasty METHODS AND RESULTS Eighteen patients with a proximally occluded left anterior descending artery and firm evidence of intercoronary… (More)
