The electrocardiogram may show depressions rather than priinzmetal in ST segments but in all diagnosable cases clinical symptoms should be promptly relieved and ECC changes should be promptly reversed by rapidly acting sublingual or intravenous nitroglycerin.

Variant angina of Prinzmetal with normal prinzmteal arteriograms. D ICD – Did you know that your browser is out of date? Fluctuation of spastic location in patients with vasospastic angina: For a portion of patients, variant angina may priinzmetal a manifestation of a more generalized episodic smooth muscle -contractile disorder such as pdinzmetalRaynaud’s phenomenonor aspirin-induced asthma.

The angina did not occur with exertion and exercise – stress tests were typically negative During pain, ST segment elevation rather than depression occurred The angina episodes often recurred at the same time, frequently awaking the patient from sleep The episodes may be associated with arrhythmias or progress on to myocardial infarction Considering these differences, Prinzmetal coined the term “variant angina” and speculated that the condition was due to an “increased coronary tonus” or vasospasm.

Racial heterogeneity in coronary artery vasomotor reactivity: Heberden in that it appeared due to episodic vasospasm anggina coronary arteries that were typically not occluded by pathological processes such as atherosclerosisembolior spontaneous dissection i.


In addition, aspirin should be used with caution and at low doses since at high doses it inhibits the production of the naturally occurring vasodilator, prostacyclin. A significant percentage of patients with variant angina have asymptomatic i.

Seven major factors i. Retrieved April 28, Molecular, clinical and imaging aspects”. Organic coronary stenosis in Prinzmetal’s variant angina.

Vasospastic Angina

Many early studies utilised this clinical approach but with variane advent of imaging the coronary arteries via selective angiography, the focus has moved towards the diagnosis based upon provocative spasm testing. The intake of certain angnia have been reported to trigger an attack of variant angina.

Provocative coronary spasm testing: Cardiac examination of individuals with variant angina is usually normal in the absence of current symptoms. Avoiding predisposing factors such as smoking and preventing coronary spasm by the use of vasodilator therapies. Long-term infarct-free survival in Japanese filled shapes and Caucasian open shapes patients with variant angina.

Independent determinants of infarct-free survival include the use of calcium channel blockers, extent and severity of coronary artery disease, and multivessel spasm 9.

Prinzmetal’s or Prinzmetal Angina, Variant Angina and Angina Inversa | American Heart Association

The term vasospastic angina is sometime used to include all of these atypical prinzemtal with the more typical cases of variant angina. The mechanism that causes such intense vasospasm, as to cause a clinically significant narrowing of the coronary arteries is so far unknown, but there are three relevant hypotheses:. Started inthis collection now contains interlinked topic pages divided into a tree of 31 specialty books and chapters.

Variant angina may remain quiescent for prolonged periods and then recur with multiple frequent episodes.

The American Journal of Medicine. Finally, rare cases may exhibit symptom-free coronary artery spasm that is nonetheless associated with cardiac muscle ischemia i. However, the gold standard for diagnosing variant angina is to visualize coronary arteries by angiography before and after injection of a provocative agent such as ergonovinemethylergonovine or acetylcholine to precipitate an attack of vasospasm. It is caused by vasospasma narrowing of the coronary arteries due to contraction of the smooth muscle tissue in the vessel walls.

Background InWilliam Heberden, a British physician, aptly described the features of classical angina of effort, remarking on its occurrence with exertion and prompt resolution with rest. Induction of coronary artery spasm by acetylcholine in patients with variant angina: An International Journal of Pathology.

Clinical Chemistry and Laboratory Medicine. Our digital magazine link opens in new window delivers helpful articles and the latest news on keeping your heart healthy. Prevention of vasospasm Complications Resources References Extra: Sensitivity and specificity of intracoronary injection of acetylcholine for the induction of coronary artery spasm.

Indeed, it often woke sufferers from their normal sleep.

These attacks were triggered by exercise or other forms of exertion and relieved by rest and nitroglycerin. They are also tested by ECG which may suggest variant angina if it shows elevations in the ST segment or an elevated ST segment plus a widening of the R wave during symptoms that are triggered by a variannte agent e.
