A 64-yr-old woman, who had no history of anginal attack, underwent cholecystectomy under general anesthesia. A few hours after successful surgery, the EKG showed T-wave inversions with QT-interval prolongations and torsades de pointes. The [123I]MIBG scintigraphic findings revealed marked denervation in the anteroseptal and inferoposterior myocardium, whereas 201TI myocardial SPECT showed only slightly reduced tracer uptake in those areas. The [123I]BMIPP scans showed abnormal fatty acid metabolism in the anteroseptal myocardium. Coronary angiogram detected no fixed stenosis, but coronary vasoconstriction in the left anterior descending artery was induced by intracoronary injection of acetylcholine. In our patient, the findings of cardiac imaging with [123I]MIBG, 201TI and [123I]BMIPP led to coronary angiography and the final diagnosis of probable perioperative coronary vasospasm.
