Role of relative myocardial perfusion reserve for evaluating stenosis severity in patients with single-vessel coronary artery disease using.

Abstract

A statistically significant correlation was observed between the severity of anatomic stenosis and coronary flow reserve in experimental animals. A similar correlation in human coronary artery disease (CAD) was shown using positron emission tomography (PET) and pharmacologic vasodilator stress. The present study tested whether the concept of relative… (More)
