The DISCOVER INOCA Prospective Multi-center Registry - Determining the Cause of Coronary Vasomotor Disorders in Patients with Ischemia and No Obstructive Coronary Artery Disease
What is the purpose of this trial?
The DISCOVER INOCA registry is a study to help us understand the causes of chest pain, shortness of breath, or other symptoms of heart disease in people who don't have cholesterol blockages in their blood vessels. This disease, called ischemia and no obstructive coronary artery disease (INOCA), can give patients symptoms that look and feel just like a heart attack. Participants may be eligible if their heart doctor believes that they need a procedure called a "catheterization" or "angiogram" to look directly at the blood vessels. The study involves questionnaires to help us better understand our patients, and 5-years of phone follow-up.
