Abstract

Approximately 20% to 30% of patients who experience chest pain who undergo coronary angiography are found to have normal epicardial coronary arteries. The management of these patients can be challenging and a correct diagnosis of the etiology is essential. A systematic approach to diagnosing the cause of chest pain can be accomplished with a functional angiogram to assess endothelial and microvascular function. Once the etiology of chest pain is determined, the appropriate therapy can be initiated.
