Exercise training as a mediator for enhancing coronary collateral circulation: A review of the evidence (2019)
Journal Article
Nickolay, T., Nichols, S., Ingle, L., & Hoye, A. (2020). Exercise training as a mediator for enhancing coronary collateral circulation: A review of the evidence. Current Cardiology Reviews, 16(3), 212-220. https://doi.org/10.2174/1573403X15666190819144336

Coronary collateral vessels supply blood to areas of myocardium at risk after arterial occlusion. Flow through these channels is driven by a pressure gradient between the donor and the occluded artery. Concomitant with increased collateral flow is an...
