ABSTRACT
1. The combination product of PETN-hydroxyzinc is a very useful drug in the treatment of the patient with arteriosclerotic heart disease and angina pectoris especially when the patient exhibits emotional instability, anxiety, fear, excitement, emotional outburst, emotional drive, and tension as evidenced by 100 per cent improvement in a group of 31 �nervous� angina sufferers. 2. This vasodilator-ataractic combination is a useful preparation in the recent coronary patient who must learn to accept his illness, learn to live with it, and to adopt a slower tempo of living. 3. Effective results obtained with this combination of PETN-hydroxyzine in angina pectoris amply corroborate those of Samuels and Shaftel obtained in angina cruris; these favorable results appear chiefly attributable to the interdigitating pharmacologic effects of hydroxyzine. 4. Cartrax� is judged as a valuable complement to the armamentarium in coronary heart disease and angina pectoris.
