We have developed a mathematical model which describes pressure-inflow relationships in the coronary circulation. Model parameters have been identified during metabolic and pharmacologic vasodilation. These two stimuli appear to affect resistance and back pressure in different ways. A possible explanation involving myogenic and metabolic effects is suggested.
