AIM To assess the relative contribution of epicardial endothelium-dependent (EDD) and microvascular endothelium-independent (EIMVD) coronary vasomotor dysfunction to the extent of myocardial ischemia in patients with normal angiograms or non-obstructive coronary artery disease (NOCAD). METHODS Coronary vasomotion was evaluated by quantitative angiography and blood flow (CBF) measurements during intracoronary acetylcholine, nitroglycerine, and adenosine in 101 patients. Myocardial SPECT… CONTINUE READING
