Evaluation of dynamic changes in microvascular flow during ischemia-reperfusion by myocardial contrast echocardiography.

Abstract

BACKGROUND Dynamic changes of myocardial blood flow have been observed after reperfusion of an occluded coronary artery. MCE performed by intracoronary contrast injection can provide an estimate of microvascular flow. We hypothesized that MCE performed using intravenous infusion of a new generation contrast agent and electrocardiogram-gated harmonic imaging… (More)
