Abstract

Collateral flow is an independent determinant of infarct size in both animal and clinical studies of myocardial infarction. The purpose of this study was to quantitatively evaluate, in a closed-chest animal model, a noninvasive method of measuring coronary collateral flow over a wide spectrum of collateral flow rates from a tracer that can be injected during occlusion but measured after reperfusion. Methods: Fourteen animals underwent 40 min of coronary occlusion using a closed-chest technique. Two closed-chest models representing different rates of collateral flow were used: canine and porcine. Coronary blood flow was measured by radiolabeled microspheres. Collateral blood within the risk zone was estimated from the severity of 99mTc-sestamibi tomographic perfusion defect. Results: Collateral blood flow was significantly higher in the canine model than it was in the porcine model. There was close agreement (r = 0.90) between absolute collateral flow by microspheres and the severity of the tomographic perfusion defect. Conclusion: These results suggest that an accurate noninvasive estimate of collateral blood flow can be provided by an intravenous injection of 99mTc-sestamibi.
