In brief: Cardiospasm?

This is not a medical term so i'm not sure what you have, but if you mean "coronary artery spasm, " the treatment is calcium channel blockers and nitrates.

In brief: Options

Botox injection may give temporary relief, but makes subsequent surgery much more difficult.
Endoscopic balloon dilation is effective, but requires at least two treatments, and if there is a perforation, surgery will be required emergently. Surgical myotomy is usually performed laparoscopically, but is now being performed at several centers in the U.S. Endoscopically, referred to as poem.
