Özet

Background: The coronary slow-flow phenomenon is an angiographic phenomenon characterized by delayed opacification of vessels in the absence of any evidence of obstructive epicardial coronary disease. Several studies have demonstrated myocardial ischemia in patients with slow coronary artery flow. In the present study, we aimed at evaluating the effects of slow coronary artery flow on QT interval duration and QT dispersion as a possible indicator of increased risk for ventricular arrhythmias and sudden cardiac death.
