The article focuses on the management of patients with angina pectoris. The symptom of effort angina pectoris is produced by a transient imbalance between the supply and demand of blood by the myocardium resulting from an increased myocardial demand and restricted myocardial blood flow. Therefore, effort angina pectoris is distinguished from spontaneous angina pectoris, in which coronary vasospasm is thought to play an important role. These two mechanisms may coexist, and coronary vasospasm has been shown to occur during exercise.
