Refractory coronary spasm relieved by intracoronary administration of nicorandil.

Two patients in whom coronary spasm was refractory to intracoronary injection of nitroglycerin were relieved by intracoronary administration of nicorandil (a nitrate and potassium channel opener) during catheterization. These findings suggest that nicorandil may prove useful as an additional therapeutic agent.
