The team at Medmastery are providing LITFL readers with a series of FOAMed courses from across their website.

Over the next couple of weeks, we’ll be posting videos from the Coronary Angiography Essentials course. Today’s video is a case-demonstration of the acute coronary no-reflow phenomenon and a discussion about the importance of coronary microcirculation.
