Abstract

Abstract Nicardipine is a new dihydropyridine calcium antagonist similar in chemical structure to nifedipine. Nicardipine is a potent coronary and systemic vasodilator that, when administered intravenously, evokes reflex tachycardia, increased myocardial contractile state and increased myocardial oxygen consumption in man. 1 In this report, we describe a patient who had angina pectoris and objective evidence for myocardial ischemia at rest during intravenous nicardipine administration. Coronary and systemic hemodynamics, indexes of left ventricular (LV) systolic and diastolic function and myocardial oxygen consumption were recorded before and during nicardipine-associated angina.
