The Info List - Coronary Vasospasm





Coronary vasospasm is a sudden, intense vasoconstriction of an epicardial coronary artery that causes occlusion (stoppage) or near-occlusion of the vessel. It can cause Prinzmetal's angina. It can occur in multiple vessels.[1][2] Atropine
Atropine
has been used to treat the condition.[3] See also[edit]
