1. Mechanisms of pain in angina mediated through catecholamines and through renal pathways are discussed. 2. The major factors precipitating angina pectoris are physical effort and emotional stress. 3. Management of the physical factors is self-evident, while control of emotional factors is known to be difficult. 4. Emotional factors present a problem also in evaluating the therapeutic efficacy of antianginal drugs. Neither supposedly objective tests, double-blind studies, nor �clinical impressions� can be depended upon to give adequate criteria for critical evaluation, and care must be taken to avoid the pitfalls of overdependence on any single technique.
