Abstract/OtherAbstract:
Prinzmetal angina is a crucial differential diagnosis of acute coronary syndromes. The clinical picture is similar but different due to transient ECG changes and occurrence of angina symptoms without physical activity. The mechanism is still unknown, however endothelial dysfunction may play a role. Here we present a case of Prinzmetal angina complicated by AV-block. Knowledge and awareness about different complications of Prinzmetal angina is necessary to improve management and outcome.
