Fixed vs nonfixed coronary stenosis: the response to a fall in coronary pressure in a canine model.


The resistance of a coronary stenosis capable of passive vasomotion may change in response to alterations in intraluminal pressure. We studied the effects of a fall in perfusion pressure on the hemodynamics of two types of coronary stenosis in 12 open chest dogs: 1) a stenosis produced by placing a soft wire snare around the artery, and 2) a stenosis that… (More)
