Most often, such patients are neither further investigated nor offered specific treatment beyond reassurance. However, the absence of significant coronary stenoses on angiography does not necessarily imply a "healthy" coronary tree. In such cases, myocardial ischemia may result from different types of functional disease involving the… CONTINUE READING
