Abstract

Anginal pain occurring at rest and associated with transient ST-segment elevation (STE) is the hallmark of coronary artery spasm. However, patients with angiographically-documented spasm have now been reported to have “silent” myocardial ischemia, which may take two forms: some have episodes of STE which are symptomatically silent, others have spasm and pain without demonstrable STE, i.e. electrocardiographically silent ischemia.
