Abstract/OtherAbstract:
Nifedipine was administered to 21 patients with angina pectoris which was refractory to conventional medication. In no case had coronary artery spasm been demonstrated. The condition of 13 patients (62%) improved with nifedipine, and eight patients (38%) had a long-term response. Nitrate-type side effects were reported by seven patients (33%), all of whom were being treated concurrently with isosorbide dinitrate. We conclude that nifedipine is a promising drug in the management of angina pectoris, even in the absence of documented coronary spasm.
