A fistula between the left internal mammary artery and the left ventricle is a potential complication of a Vineberg operation. Such a case is described. Reappearance of anginal attacks, their precipitation by progressively smaller amounts of exertion, and an apical diastolic murmur not present before surgery were the clues to the diagnosis which was confirmed by cineangiography. Deterioration of the patient's condition is explained by the increased volume load imposed by the fistula on the left ventricle and the coronary circulation.

    The article presents a study which aims to determine the effects of aging on coronary flow reserve (CFR) and atherosclerotic factors (ARFs) in patients with normal epicardial coronary arteries. It is inferred that aging reduces the CFR due to an increase of resting coronary flow velocity. The...

    The phase opposition of velocity waveforms between coronary arteries (predominantly diastolic) and veins (systolic) is the most prominent characteristic of coronary hemodynamics. This unique arterial and venous flow patterns indicate the importance of intramyocardial capacitance vessels and...
