Abstract

Evidence exists for the presence of a neuro-anatomy that can produce cardiac vasospasm. Recent experimental and clinical data suggest that this neuro-anatomic mechanism can be activated by behavioral events in the psycho-social surround of the patient with coronary artery disease. I hypothesize that this mechanism can produce myocardial ischemia and can explain the variability in onset of clinical angina.
