Don’t be satisfied with a diagnosis of angina with no obstructive coronary artery disease; push for acetylcholine testing, the findings from a trial in Scotland suggest.Patients will have less angina and a better quality of life at 6 months, according to investigators of the CORMICA Trial from the University of Glasgow, Scotland.
