ABSTRACT
The article cites a study on the treatment of angina pectoris. It is reported in the article that anterior chest wall pain which can be confused with angina pectoris may have many causes including disorders of mediastinal contents, esophagus and stomach, musculoskeletal disturbances of the chest, pain referred from shoulder and cervical spine disease. The study revealed that the major difficulty in establishing a causal relationship between subclavian and myocardial steal is the fact that both are the result of atherosclerosis.
