During a maximal exercise test transient ischaemic electrocardiographic (ECG) changes developed in a young athlete who had entirely normal coronary arteries on angiography. Myocardial scintigraphy revealed a perfusion defect in the anterior wall of the left ventricle with a reduced washout of 133Xenon. A localized hypokinetic area coterminuos with the perfusion defect was disclosed by echoventriculography. This athlete, the first studied by selective coronary angiography and determination of… CONTINUE READING
