Chest pain syndromes in patients with normal angiographic findings represent a multifactorial pathophysiologic state, which may range from abnormalities in pain perception to abnormalities in endothelial- and non-endothelial-dependent coronary flow reserve associated with myocardial ischemia. Treatment begins with an accurate diagnosis by obtaining a comprehensive history and performing a physical examination, followed possibly by performing functional angiography in those who continue to have symptoms. This approach may help to determine appropriate treatment.
