Abstract/OtherAbstract:
'Coronary steal' is frequently observed in the recipient artery supplied from collaterals. Coronary steal during stress may have an adverse effect on myocardial function even in a 'well-collateralized' territory. We experienced one case with functional occlusion in which the coronary steal phenomenon was demonstrated non-invasively using transthoracic Doppler echocardiography. The non-invasive assessment of coronary flow measurement might allow us to obtain useful information for understanding the pathophysiology of coronary steal.
