Background: Some patients evaluated for chest pain with angiographically normal coronary arteries show coronary slow flow phenomenon (CSFP) on angiography. Slow flow of dye in epicardial coronary arteries is also not an infrequent finding in patients during routine coronary angiography. The precise pathophysiology of CSFP is not known yet. Hypothesis: This study investigates the presence of platelet function disorders in patients with CSFP.
