Postmortem quantification of collateral vessels in the human heart. A new approach.


A technique is introduced to quantify the microvasculature of postmortem human hearts. The method combines coronary angiography with selective perfusion of the coronary arteries with differently labeled radioactive microspheres. The transmural distribution pattern of the microspheres (endocardium-epicardium ratios) reveals that rigor mortis is a factor that… (More)
