The ST alternans was recorded during at least one ischemic attack with ST elevation in nine of 65 patients with variant angina. The magnitude and duration of ST elevation during ischemic attacks were significantly greater in patients with than in those without ST alternans. It always appeared during the occlusion phase and disappeared during the reperfusion… CONTINUE READING
