In order to evaluate the functional characteristics of the intramyocardial capacitance vessels during prolonged diastole, we analyzed the response of coronary vein flow after stepwise changes of coronary artery pressure in anesthetized open-chest dogs by using our newly developed laser Doppler velocimeter with an optical fiber. The peripheral portion of the great cardiac vein was isolated and the optical fiber tip was inserted into the vessel. The left anterior descending coronary artery was… CONTINUE READING
