Technetium-99m MIBI to assess coronary collateral flow during acute myocardial infarction in two closed-chest animal models.

Abstract

UNLABELLED Collateral flow is an independent determinant of infarct size in both animal and clinical studies of myocardial infarction. The purpose of this study was to quantitatively evaluate, in a closed-chest animal model, a noninvasive method of measuring coronary collateral flow over a wide spectrum of collateral flow rates from a tracer that can be… (More)
