A patient with distal slow-flow after stenting in the old vein graft intervention was reported. This case is a first in whom guidewire-based serial measurement of pressure-derived fractional flow reserve (FFR(myo)) and thermodilution-based coronary flow reserve (CFR(thermo)) clearly demonstrated the serial change of microvascular circulation. During slow-flow, CFR(thermo) remained in low value despite significant improvement of FFR(myo) from 0.61 to 0.90. After thrombus aspiration and nicorandil injection, coronary flow reestablished immediately. CFR(thermo) improved significantly from 1.3 during slow-flow to 3.6 after restoration of flow.
