Hemodynamic Evidence of the Development of Coronary Collateral Circulation in Conscious Dogs
Since 1964, we have addressed ourselves to the problem of the rate of development of collateral circulation following coronary occlusion in the conscious dog preparation. Four different experimental approaches have been used, all of which have essentially involved the effects of gradual circumflex branch occlusion on collateral development. An attempt will be made to summarize the earlier experiments and to give in more detail the salient features of more recent experiments.
