In brief: Unseen vessel

Hello paris -- microvascular angina is more common in women -- these are chest pain caused by smaller blood vessels within the heart muscle -- and usually undetectable by the naked eyes.

In brief: Small vessels

Angina is pain or discomfort caused by not enough blood delivering oxygen to the heart muscle.
Typically, there are blockages in larger coronary arteries on the surface of the heart which can be bypassed or stented. Microvascular angina is caused by disease in vessels too small for stenting or bypass.
