Influence of Myocardial Contraction on Coronary Microcirculation: Techniques and Results
For several years, our laboratory has been examining the hemodynamics of the coronary microcirculation with particular emphasis on the effect of myocardial contraction on these small vessels. The initial goals of the laboratory were to measure flow, diameter, and pressure in small vessels and relate the phasic characteristics of these measurements to each other.
