Sep 3, 2011 · Prinzmetal's/Variant Angina in Heart & Blood Health

Annie: There is a special angiogram to test for low coronary flow reserve and vasospasms. There is also an MRI now for determining Coronary Microvascular Disease. Getting the dx of Coronary Microvascular Disease is very important if you do not have the typical test results of a man with big vessel disease. Most cardiologists only know how to treat big vessel disease. Once you get dx with CMVD you can find a doctor who specializes in it and get better care.
In California, Bairy Noel is a specialist. I see Carl Pepine in Florida, another specialist. If you cannot find a specialist near you call one of these and ask for a referral. They are running the studies being conducted on women and heart disease and CMVD. They can offer the cutting edge medications and tests.

There IS a test for it tho it is not always accurate. It is a form of cardiac cath that involves an attempt to incite spasms with medication. Mayo does it. Get one done.
