In vitro and animal experiments have shown that the severity of coronary stenoses can be assessed using the continuity equation if the maximal blood flow velocity of the stenotic jet is measured. The large diameter and the low range of velocities measurable without frequency aliasing with the conventional intracoronary Doppler catheters precluded the clinical application of this method for hemodynamically significant coronary stenoses in humans. This article reports the results obtained using a… CONTINUE READING
