Coronary slow-flow phenomenon.

Author information

  • 1Instituto do Coraç ão de Maputo, Mozambique.


Slow flow of the contrast in normal coronary arteries is a relatively common finding in patients undergoing routine coronary angiography. The severest form of this phenomenon is known as no flow or TIMI and is uncommon, with life-threatening consequences. We describe a case of slow flow in the left anterior descending artery of a female patient undergoing a diagnostic coronary angiogram.
