abstract

  • The presence of collaterals, which may predispose to coronary collateral steal, is the most significant correlate of ischemic ST-segment depression during adenosine infusion. Systolic blood pressure at baseline, which may affect the myocardial oxygen supply/demand ratio and anginal chest pain induced by adenosine, are additional variables related to ischemic ST-segment depression during adenosine infusion.
