Sudden cardiac death from coronary artery spasm in a healthy subject

Academic Article


  • The true incidence of sudden cardiac death (SCD) from coronary artery spasm is unknown. The following case involves SCD in a previously asymptomatic young man with reasonable evidence to implicate coronary artery spasm as a potential cause for his clinical event. Ergonovine provocation may be warranted in patients who present with SCD and no discernable cause. © 1994 Wiley‐Liss,Inc.. Copyright © 1994 John Wiley & Sons, Ltd.
