Abstract/OtherAbstract:
A syncopal episode in an elderly patient with a history of carotid disease, multiple cardiac risk factors, and new onset chest pain presents diagnostic challenges. This case study describes the experience of a woman with coronary vasospasm accompanied by conduction deficits. The patient's history, diagnostic work-up, and treatment program are presented. The relationship between the coronary artery anatomic defects and the conduction abnormalities are discussed.
