• coronary flow
  • Three independent measures of microvascular function were assessed, using predefined dichotomous thresholds: i) CFR, the average value of Doppler- and thermodilution-derived coronary flow reserve (CFR), and cardiovascular magnetic resonance derived: ii) Myocardial Perfusion Reserve Index (MPRI) and iii) Microvascular Obstruction (MVO).

  • Doppler
  • We compared the diagnostic accuracy of two invasive indices of microvascular resistance, Doppler-derived hyperemic microvascular resistance (hMR) and thermodilution-derived index of microcirculatory resistance (IMR), at predicting microvascular dysfunction. (whiterose.ac.uk)
  • 54 patients (61±10 years) undergoing cardiac catheterization, for stable coronary artery disease (n=10) or acute myocardial infarction (AMI, n=44), had simultaneous intracoronary pressure, Doppler flow velocity and thermodilution flow data acquired from 74 unobstructed vessels, at rest and hyperemia.

  • monitor
  • Mean CO values were 3.7 (1.5) litre min(-1) (PAC thermodilution) and 3.1 (1.7) litre min(-1) (Aesculon) monitor). (uzh.ch)
  • CONCLUSIONS: Electrical velocimetry using the Aesculon monitor did not provide reliable CO values when compared with PAC thermodilution. (uzh.ch)
