Investigating coronary artery vasospasm in patients with angina pectoris

 

Professor Udo Sechtem discusses 'Investigating coronary artery vasospasm in patients with angina pectoris' at the 2015 ESC congress in London.

Questions:

1.Many clinicians do not believe that coronary vasospasm or microvascular spasm are not important mechanisms of action. Why is this?
2.Is there a relationship between myocarditis and coronary artery spasm?
3.How, in clinical practice, would you investigate these patients?
