ABSTRACT
The authors report 2 patients with vasospastic angina in whom alcohol ingestion was elective in preventing angina. Coronary angiography revealed no organic coronary stenosis but demonstrated coronary artery spasm during angina attacks. In 1 patient, alcohol ingestion every six hours completely suppressed frequent spontaneous angina. In the other patient, alcohol ingestion markedly prolonged the duration of the exercise on treadmill testing by preventing exercise-induced coronary spasm.

    Coronary vasospasm is characterized by chest pain at rest with ST-T changes on electro cardiogram and coronary angiography showing virtually normal coronaries. The definitive diagnosis requires the stimulation of coronary vasospasm using provocative agents, which can be life threatening. We...

    High total homocysteine (tHcy) concentrations increase coronary disease risk. Therefore, the authors examined the relation between tHcy concentrations and the number of stenotic arteries in patients with ischemic heart disease (IHD). They enrolled 155 patients with IHD (135 men) who had...
