The differential diagnosis of variant angina

P. Schweitzer

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


Variant angina is characterized by episodes of transient ST-segment elevation and, less frequently, ST-segment depression. However, ST-segment abnormalities can also signal other cardiac problems, both ischemic and nonischemic. Ambulatory electrocardiography, exercise testing, and coronary angiography may be needed to provide a correct diagnosis.
