ABSTRACT
The article discusses ways for the management of unstable angina. In dealing with unstable angina, the first problem is the terminology: The lack of clear objective criteria for a precise diagnosis of this syndrome is the major reason for the tremendous differences in mortality rates, infarction rates, and therapeutic implications reported in the literature. Unstable angina can develop to stable angina, myocardial infarction, or sudden death, or the patient can become asymptomatic. In principle the clinical picture can develop from any course in a patient with coronary artery disease: without preceding angina, with preceding angina, and after myocardial infarction.
