Interpretation of cardiac pathophysiology from pressure waveform analysis: coronary hemodynamics. Part II: Patterns of coronary flow velocity

Catheterization and Cardiovascular Diagnosis
M J Kern


These specialized tracings illustrate several important patterns of coronary blood flow velocity that may occur in patients during diagnostic cardiac catheterization. Recent advances in catheter methodologies permit easy measurement of coronary blood flow during routine coronary angiography. At the current time, measurement of coronary blood flow velocity remains a research technique but is of continuing interest in clinical syndromes of atypical angina, myocardial hypertrophy and infarction, early transplant rejection, or premature (subangiographic) atherosclerosis in some patients. A later hemodynamic rounds will examine the effects of coronary blood flow velocity and various hyperemic stimuli to assess coronary vasodilatory reserve.

Atrial Filbrillation

Atrial fibrillation refers to the abnormal heart rhythm characterized by rapid and irregular beating of the atria. Here is the latest research.


Arrhythmias are abnormalities in heart rhythms, which can be either too fast or too slow. They can result from abnormalities of the initiation of an impulse or impulse conduction or a combination of both. Here is the latest research on arrhythmias.

Atrial Fibrillation

Atrial fibrillation is a common arrhythmia that is associated with substantial morbidity and mortality, particularly due to stroke and thromboembolism. Here is the latest research.
