Study Group Discussion: Salisbury Phenomenon

Whats Salisbury effect?

It's a very interesting phenomenon.

It states that when coronary collaterals develop in the face of myocardial ischemia, they improve the blood supply. However they physically restrict left ventricular dilation and thereby raise LVEDP(LV end diastolic pressure) and reduce LV compliance.
This is because they act like tendrils/scaffold which prevent ventricular dilation.

Nice one!
