In brief: Variable course

If you have all the tests done and the cardiologist decided that you have variant/prinzmetal angina , you are prone to have a variable course.
Generally you have good prognosis if they did not find any lesions on the cath. Recurrent chest pain and very rarely mi/ arrhythmia can occur.
