WISE sheds light on angina in INOCA

Key clinical point: Women with ischemia and nonobstructive coronary artery disease and high baseline average peak flow velocity use more antianginal therapy and score worse on angina questionnaires.

Major finding: A higher baseline average coronary peak flow velocity is an independent predictor of angina.

Study details: WISE, a cross-sectional study of 260 women with symptomatic INOCA.

Disclosures: The presenter reported having no financial conflicts regarding the study, funded by the National Institutes of Health.
