Angiotensin-converting enzyme insertion/deletion polymorphism in angina pectoris with normal coronary arteriograms

Am J Cardiol. 1996 Apr 15;77(10):877-9. doi: 10.1016/s0002-9149(97)89188-6.


We investigated the relation between angiotensin-converting enzyme gene insertion/deletion polymorphism and syndrome X (angina with normal coronary arteriogram). The results of our study suggest that this polymorphism does not play a major role in the pathogenesis of microvascular angina.
