Slow coronary flow (SCF) is an angiographic finding characterized by delayed opacification of the epicardial coronary arteries without obstructive coronary disease. Resistin, an adipocytokine, plays a major role besides low-grade inflammation in atherosclerotic vascular processes and may be of importance in other coronary pathologies such as SCF.
