OBJECTIVES We sought to examine the relationship between coronary flow reserve (CFR) and myocardial capillary density (MCD) in patients with idiopathic dilated cardiomyopathy, heart failure, and normal coronary arteries. BACKGROUND Coronary flow reserve is depressed in patients with idiopathic dilated cardiomyopathy, particularly in those with end-stage congestive heart failure. METHODS We studied 18 patients, 48 +/- 10 years of age, who had a mean New York Heart Association functional… CONTINUE READING
