  • Refractory Ventricular Tachycardia From Coronary Vasospasm During Pregnancy. [Case Reports]
    Ochsner J 2019; 19(4):401-404Ergle K, Bernard M
  • CONCLUSIONS: To our knowledge, this case is the first report of severe drug-refractory vasospastic angina triggered by pregnancy. The hormonal and nervous system changes that occur during pregnancy appear to be a trigger for vasospasm, further highlighted by the quick resolution of the patient's symptoms postdelivery. A multidisciplinary approach for treatment of both mother and baby was necessary. Our case provides a cautionary tale that patients with refractory vasospastic angina may want to pursue definitive contraception.
