Abstract [en]

The MediStim flowmeter displayed a lower PI than the Transonic, due to a lower filter setting. In the Transonic, flow signals are filtered at a lower level, rendering a 'smoother' pattern of flow curves. Because different filter settings determine different PIs, caution must be taken when flow values and flowmeters are compared. The type of flowmeter should be indicated whenever graft flow measurements and derived indexes are provided.
