Aims and objectives
Introduce the causes of variant angina 2.
Understand the clinical and angiographic manifestation of variant angina 3.
Show the potential of cardiac MDCT imaging to verify variant angina on the basis of our cardiac MDCT registry with 58,
372 cases. : This exhibit aims to illustrate various imaging findings of several subtypes of variant angina Introduction> •Angina pectoris is caused by transient myocardial ischemia due to an imbalance between myocardial oxygen demand and...
Methods and materials
We reviewedradiologic findings ofvariant angina on the basis of our cardiac MDCT registry with 58,
All cases on this exhibition was confirmedas variant angina by conventional coronary angiography
1.Diffuse vasospasm in the coronary artery 52-year-old man,
acute chest pain. Compared with previous cardiac CT (A),
follow-up CT (B) showed diffuse severe stenosis at proximal LAD and concentric stenosis,
rapidly progress for 2 months suggestive of variant angina .
On coronary arteriography ,
there was no remakable finding in the baseline study (C),
but diffuse stenosis was provoked with ergonovine,
which was relieved with nitroglycerin administration (E). 2.
Typical focal vasospasm...
Understanding of 4 subtypes of variant angina and its radiological findings on cardiac MDCT is very important in patient with chest pain. Cardiac MDCT have a potential to play an important role in diagnosing variant angina in selective patients with acute chest pain
