Hi,
How are you?  Hi,
How are you? Syndrome Y or the coronary slow-flow phenomenon, is an angiographic finding that presents with delayed progression of the contrast medium during coronary angiography. However, the mechanism of this phenomenon remains unknown. This is increasingly recognized as a separate clinical entity along with the “classic” coronary syndrome X  in the framework of microvascular angina (ref:http://onlinelibrary.wiley.com/doi/10.1111/j.1755-5922.2010.00232.x/abstract)  
It is best that you discuss this with your attending physician for proper evaluation. Factors such as your symptoms, diagnostic results and medical history are important considerations also. Take care and best regards.
