Exercised-induced coronary spasm in near normal coronary arteries

Int J Vasc Med. 2010;2010:207479. doi: 10.1155/2010/207479. Epub 2010 Jun 17.


In contrast to effort-induced symptoms in obstructive coronary disease, spasm in normal coronary arteries is characterized by angina at rest. We describe a 44-year-old patient with minor coronary plaques and pure exercised-induced coronary spasm. The case questions the differential pathogenic considerations of variant of the variant as opposed to Prinzmetal's variant angina.
