Abstract

A 67-year-old man, who was previously diagnosed with vasospastic angina and treated with standard therapy, was admitted to our hospital because of recurrent chest pain refractory to sublingual nitroglycerin. Admission electrocardiography revealed ST segment elevation in II, III and aVF, and his symptoms were relieved by intravenous bolus administration of nicorandil. He was diagnosed to have active variant angina, and remained symptomatic even after treatment with calcium antagonists and nitrates at optimal doses. Intravenous bolus administration of nicorandil was consistently effective to relieve his symptoms. Anginal attack was finally prevented by massive oral nicorandil in addition to conventional treatment.
