Koronare Vasomotion bei Myokardischämie

Conference paper

Zusammenfassung

Im Mittelpunkt der vorliegenden Betrachtung soll die Pathophysiologie der Myokarddurchblutung bei regionaler Myokardischämie stehen. Ohne die Bedeutung der extravasalen Komponente des Koronarwiderstandes, insbesondere für die Verteilung der Durchblutung im ischämischen Myokard [6, 55, 91], geringzuschätzen, sollen hier in erster Linie die aktiven koronarvasomotorischen Mechanismen betrachtet werden.
