Pages 24-28 (5)
Abstract:
The human coronary collateral circulation is prognostically relevant. The understanding of collateral formation and its determinants may guide future therapeutic strategies aiming at promoting collateral growth and functionality, and hence reducing the global burden of coronary artery disease (CAD).
Keywords:
Coronary circulation, collateral circulation, determinants.
