Abstract

A case of a 79-year-old man with risk factors of ischaemic heart disease is presented. He was admitted to the Cardiology Ward because of recurrent angina pectoris with ST-segment elevation in the anterior electrocardiographic leads. Coronary arteriography revealed 90% stenosis of the marginal branch of the left coronary artery, which was supplied by coronary angioplasty. During hospitalisation recurrent episodes of angina pectoris were noted, only in night hours, with ST-segment elevations in anterior electrocardiographic leads. Pharmacotherapy with calcium blockers and nitrates eliminated the episodes of chest pain in a ten-month follow-up.
