Despite extensive anatomicopathologic studies, the characteristics of the coronary circulation responsible for ischemic heart disease have not been quantitatively defined. Recent advances in the measurement of coronary blood flow, combined with the technic of coronary sinus catheterization,1a, b, c have resulted in a physiologic approach to the dynamics of coronary flow in man. It is the purpose of this report to present the hemodynamic and biochemical characteristics of the coronary circulation in patients with angina pectoris. Our findings are based on a correlative clinical, electrocardiographic and cardiac catheterization study of 50 patients.
Coronary sinus catheterization was performed with measurement of
