9:07amCase Presentation: A ‘Simple Case’ of Stable Angina & PCI
  • 58 yr old healthy park ranger with 3 months of typical angina (outpatients)
  • ETT – subjectively & objectively positive for ischemia at high workload
  • CTCA ‐ moderate mid‐LAD disease
  • Invasive angiogram ‐ FFR (LAD) = 0.74 → mid‐LAD PCI
  • Post‐PCI Angina – CCS‐II angina on 2 antianginals (bisoprolol and nicorandil)
  • ETT ‐ subjectively & objectively positive for ischemia at slightly lower work
  • Functional angiogram ‐ widely patent stent, FFR = 0.85, CFR = 2.6 IMR = 35
  • ACh provocation test ‐ focal epicardial spasm, resolved with ic GTN
  • Bisoprolol → verapamil ‐ symptomatic improvement at follow up

10.00amDiscussion: Coronary Microvascular Dysfunction Therapy
