Seven major factors i. Prinzmetal angina may also be referred to as: Definition NCI A variant form of angina pectoris caused by coronary artery vasospasm, usually occurring spontaneously and frequently associated with ST segment elevation.

Prinzmetal’s or Prinzmetal Angina, Variant Angina and Angina Inversa

Medicines can help control the spasms. Report of a six year experience”. However following several deaths using this approach, provocative testing has primarily been undertaken during coronary angiography, where spasm can be promptly identified and treated with intracoronary nitrates if necessary.

The only evidence of the presence of totally asymptomatic variant angina would be detection of diagnostic changes on fortuitously conducted ECGs. And, they should avoid any of the recreational and therapeutic drugs listed in the above Signs and symptoms sects as well as blockers of beta receptorssuch as propranololwhich, theoretically, may worsen vasospasm by inhibiting Beta-2 adrenergic receptor vasodilation mediated by these receptors naturally occurring stimulator, epinephrine.

The clinical history and ECG recording during a spontaneous attack are paramount in the clinical diagnosis of variant angina. Whereas exercise does not typically precipitate an episode of variant angina, hyperventilation and exposure to the cold can provoke episodes.


This was later attributed to fixed obstructive coronary atherosclerotic anina and associated with dynamic ST segment depression on the electrocardiogram ECG during pain.

The mechanism that causes such intense vasospasm, as to cause a clinically significant narrowing of the anbina arteries is so far unknown, but there are three relevant hypotheses:. Subscribe to Heart Insight magazine and the monthly e-newsletter today! Circadian variation of exercise capacity in patients with Prinzmetal’s variant angina: 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.

Myron Prinzmetal described a type of angina that differed from the classic cases of Heberden angina in that it commonly occurred in the absence of exercise or exertion. Related Bing Images Extra: Prinzmetal’s angina is a chronic condition that will need to be followed by your healthcare provider even though the prognosis is generally good.

It usually occurs spontaneously, and unlike typical angina, it nearly always occurs when a person is at rest and does not require physical exertion. Clinical Features Clinically, the hallmark features of variant angina include: Drugs such as calcium anginz and nitrates are the mainstays of treatment.

However, individuals commonly develop tolerancei. Prinzmetal’s angina or coronary artery vasospasm. The angina did not occur with exertion and exercise – stress tests were typically negative During pain, ST segment elevation rather anginx 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 variantee tonus” or vasospasm.

A comparative study between western and Japanese populations.

Related Topics in Coronary Artery Disease. Two approaches have evolved in the diagnosis of variant angina. For a portion of patients, variant angina may be a manifestation of a more generalized episodic smooth muscle -contractile disorder such as migraineRaynaud’s phenomenonor aspirin-induced asthma. Fluctuation of spastic location in patients with vasospastic angina: The temporal pattern of the rest angina warrants close consideration in evaluating these patients, both in relation to its waxing and waning nature and its distinct circadian rhythm.

Provocative coronary spasm testing: The circadian nature of this disorder is also well recognised and illustrated by Yasue et al 3 who could provoke ST elevation in variant angina patients in the early morning am but seldom when repeated in these patients in the afternoon pm. De acordo com Tada e cols. Long-term prognosis of patients with variant angina.

Clinical characteristics and long-term survival of patients with variant angina. However, coronary stenting is contraindicated in drug- rpinzmetal individuals who do not have significant organic occlusion of their coronary arteries. These episodes may be far more frequent than expected, cause myocardial ischemia i. Despite the availability of effective therapies for coronary artery spasm, the diagnosis of variant angina is infrequently considered in patients with angina.
