BACKGROUND Persons living at high altitude (exposed to hypoxia) have a greater number of coronary and peripheral branches in the heart than persons living at sea level. In this study we investigated the effect of intermittent hypobaric hypoxia on myocardial perfusion in patients with coronary heart disease. METHODS AND RESULTS We studied 6 male patients (aged>or=53 years) with severe stable coronary heart disease. All patients were born at sea level and lived in that environment. They… CONTINUE READING
