Possible causes of reversible perfusion defect in exercise-rest 201Tl myocardial images in a patient with a normal coronary artery angiogram include left bundle branch block, coronary spasm, myocardial bridges, hypertrophic cardiomyopathy, mitral valve prolapse, aortic valve disease and anomalous origin of the left coronary artery arising from the pulmonary artery. This case is a report of a 34-yr-old man with incomplete right bundle branch block and angiographically normal coronary arteries… CONTINUE READING
