Microvascular Angina - Diagnosis and Treatment
Microvascular angina is more common a condition than initially thought and poses major diagnostic and therapeutic challenges. Ischaemia triggered by coronary microvascular dysfunction affects subjects with and without coronary artery disease. The coronary microvessels are less responsive to vasodilator agents than the epicardial coronary arteries and this poses yet another difficulty in the management of patients affected by this condition.
