coronary artery vasospasm

Acute coronary insufficiency, anterior chest wall syndrome, coronary artery spasm, coronary vasoconstriction, Prinzmetal's angina, variant angina, vasospastic angina Cardiology A condition characterized by sudden and usually transient vasoconstriction of a coronary artery with ↓ myocardial O2 Clinical Severe, crushing, chest pain at rest and ST segment deviation Precipitating factors Emotional stress, medications, street drugs–cocaine, cold exposure, stress, vasoconstrictors Diagnosis Normal angiogram, ST segment ↑ EKG ST segment deviation–usually ↑ without preceding ↑ in heart rate or BP Management Nitrates, nifedipine or diltiazem with aspirin; slow CCBs–eg, verapamil, may contribute to AV block. Cf Angina pectoris.

The mechanism of Kounis syndrome (KS) involves release of inflammatory cytokines through mast cell activation, which leads to coronary artery vasospasm and/or atheromatous plaque erosion or rupture (2).
