The provocation of coronary artery spasm

Catheterization and Cardiovascular Diagnosis
R A Chahine

Abstract

On the basis of the overall experience, the provocation of coronary artery spasm with ergonovine is thought to be a highly sensitive and specific test for coronary artery spasm in Prinzmetal's variant angina. In spite of occasional complications, in experienced hands the procedure is considered to be safe. The challenge remains to determine the value of this and other provocative interventions in assessing the role of spasm in other aspects of ischemic heart disease, particularly in patients with critical atherosclerotic lesions.

Arrhythmia

Arrhythmias are abnormalities in heart rhythms, which can be either too fast or too slow. They can result from abnormalities of the initiation of an impulse or impulse conduction or a combination of both. Here is the latest research on arrhythmias.

Atrial Fibrillation

Atrial fibrillation is a common arrhythmia that is associated with substantial morbidity and mortality, particularly due to stroke and thromboembolism. Here is the latest research.
