Abstract

A 71-year-old Japanese man was admitted to our hospital due to chest pain for further investigations. We performed coronary arteriography because of suspecting coronary spasm. The patient was diagnosed as vasospastic angina by the ergonovine test but not the acetylcholine test. Supplementary use of a pharmacological agent is necessary for documenting coronary spasm in the cardiac catheterization laboratory.

Keywords:

Vasospastic angina; Acetylcholine; Ergonovine
