Abstract

High-frequency transthoracic Doppler echocardiography was used to determine the effects of significant stenosis on distal coronary blood flow velocity profiles. Before coronary angioplasty there was a reduction in diastolic and systolic flow and diastolic/systolic peak velocity ratio. After successful angioplasty velocity ratios returned to normal.
