Slow coronary flow in patients undergoing urgent coronary angiography for ST elevation myocardial infarction
MetadataShow full item record
The slow coronary flow (SCF), also known as syndrome Y, has been described since 1972 . Slow coronary flow phenomenon is characterized by delayed opacification of epicardial coronary vessels in the absence of stenosis and/or conditions such as coronary ectasia, coronary spasm, valvular and myocardial heart disease [2–4]. However, previous studies showed SCF may cause unstable angina and non-ST elevation myocardial infarction (non-STEMI), association between SCF and STEMI have not evaluated adequately yet [3–8].
