Abstract

Myocardial ischaemia as a whole is a series of physiological phenomena manifested by clinical conditions such as silent ischaemia, stable angina and acute coronary syndromes. Various blood flow regulation mechanisms, myocardial demand, adenosine release and endothelial function in the coronary arteries are vital for maintaining myocardial irrigation, and have been the physiological basis for tests like fractional flow reserve, developed to detect ischaemia, that today forms part of the guideline recommendations.
