Coronary microvascular dysfunction: mechanisms and functional assessment

  title={Coronary microvascular dysfunction: mechanisms and functional assessment},
  author={Paolo G. Camici and Giulia d'Amati and O. Rimoldi},
  journal={Nature Reviews Cardiology},
Obstructive disease of the epicardial coronary arteries was recognized as the cause of angina pectoris >2 centuries ago, and sudden thrombotic occlusion of an epicardial coronary artery has been established as the cause of acute myocardial infarction for >100 years. In the past 2 decades, dysfunction of the coronary microvasculature emerged as an additional mechanism of myocardial ischaemia that bears important prognostic implications. The coronary microvasculature (vessels <300 μm in diameter… CONTINUE READING
