Relationships between regional myocardial perfusion and transmural function, both during treadmill exercise and at rest, were examined in conscious dogs with varying degrees of coronary stenosis produced by a hydraulic occluder. In 13 dogs we measured myocardial blood flow with microspheres (10-12 microns in diameter) and regional systolic wall thickening (%). During exercise with coronary stenosis, myocardial blood flow was characterized by nonuniform distribution, and associated with regional… CONTINUE READING
