Abstract

Coronary vasoconstriction may play a relevant role in the pathogenesis of exercise-induced myocardial ischemia, not only in patients with Prinzmetal's angina, but also in patients with chronic stable angina. In these patients the use of calcium antagonists, namely, dihydropyridine derivatives, may be beneficial. Hyperventilation is a simple and sensitive test to discriminate patients with effort angina who will improve their exercise capacity after administration of these drugs.
