Abstract

Coronary collateral blood flow can be increased with adenosine and nitroglycerin in patients with one-vessel disease and spontaneously visible collateral vessels, which is in contrast to patients with recruitable collateral vessels. This effect is the result of a reduction in the collateral vascular resistance and peripheral vascular resistance of the recipient coronary artery.
