Slow Coronary Flow Disease in Normal epicardial Coronary Arteries
What is Slow Coronary Flow Disease (SCF) detected on conducting a Cath Angiogram? What are the risk factors and implications associated? What are the causes of SCF?

The patient has 3 TMTs done. All the 3 TMTs are positive for Myocardial Ischemia with ST depressions seen both during exercise & recovery stage. He also has Angina associated and has been diagonized with Slow Flow Disease (SCF)

Hi,
As mentioned from the other post, this is an  increasingly recognized as a separate clinical entity along with the “classic” coronary syndrome X  in the framework of microvascular angina. The mechanism of this phenomenon remains unknown and further studies are continuously being done describe the clinical characteristics, including the prognosis, of these patients and to identify potential treatment (ref:http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/18503124)
It is best that you discuss this with your attending physician for proper evaluation. Factors such as your symptoms, diagnostic results and medical history are important considerations also. Take care and best regards.
