The article presents information on coronary artery constriction that can stint myocardial perfusion and cause angina pectoris. The reverse remains unproven: A disproportionately large coronary artery does not necessarily cause angina pectoris by stealing flow from other branches. The clinical, electro-cardiographic, angiographic, and ultrasound evidence of hypertrophic cardiomyopathy in this patient implies a separate disease responsible for the patient's symptoms and amenable to treatment with beta blocking agents.
