Multivessel variant angina unresponsive to urapidil.

We present a case of variant angina complicated by recurrent sudden cardiac death. During coronary angiography a diffuse 3-vessel vasoconstriction was observed progressing to a more severe vasoconstriction in the mid LAD. Intracoronary administration of urapidil did not reverse the vasoconstriction of the LAD; instead an occlusive vasospasm occurred accompanied by marked ischaemia.
