  • Look Inside

Coronary spasms were induced by ergonovine loading in a case of coronary ectasia. A 67-year-old male underwent coronary angiography because of a feeling of compression in the anterior thoracic region. Marked coronary ectasia was noted in the entire trunk of the right coronary artery, and spasms were induced in peripheral branches of the right coronary artery by ergonovine loading. Five months later, repeat coronary angiography showed rapid progression of arteriosclero-sis in the diagonal branch of the left coronary artery (# 9).
