In the present study, we report the finding that some patients with spontaneous typical angina and angiographically normal coronary arteries present an abnormal cardiocoronary capacity to produce thromboxane A2, both in basal conditions and after sympathetic stimulation. The levels of thromboxane A2 in coronary sinus are significantly correlated to the rate of clearance of contrast medium in coronary circulation. Such a finding might be useful in better understanding the interesting syndrome of angina with normal coronary arteries.
