Interpretation of Coronary Vascular Perfusion

  • Chapter

Abstract

Despite years of innovative experimentation and the development of numerous models of the coronary circulation, controversy remains over the fundamental mechanisms underlying coronary vascular perfusion. The fundamental reason for this is the inaccessibility of the intramyocardial vessels to direct measurement. The coronary circulation is thus a prime candidate for physiological modeling.
