Title: Vasomotor reactivity studies of small and large coronary arteries / John Francis Beltrame.
Author: Beltrame, John Francis
Issue Date: 1998
School/Discipline: Dept. of Medicine
Abstract: The objective of this thesis is to examine vasomotor reactivity in both large and small arterial vessels utilising both basic and clinical models. In 4 sections, the thesis: 1. summarises fundamental morphological and physiological principles of the coronary circulation, methods of assessing coronary vasomotor reactivity and characteristics of clinical disorders with vasomotor dysfunction ; 2. investigates regional heterogeneity of vasomotor reactivity in sheep epicardial coronary arteries ; 3. involves studies of the coronary flow phenomenon ; 4. involves a comparison of published Japanese and Caucasian coronary vasomotor reactivity studies and 5. involved an observational study of patients presenting with acute ST elevation.
