ABSTRACT
The article presents information on angina. The premonitory syndrome or intermediate syndrome, often termed unstable angina and originally described in 1937, was considered important because it frequently presaged the serious sequel of a major myocardial infarction and serious arrhythmia or sudden death. It is identified by the onset or altered pattern of one or more attacks of anginal pain. This intermediate syndrome, occupying a clinical and pathologic position between stable angina and major myocardial infarction, is hard to define. It often precedes minor benign myocardial infarction, which is generally diagnosable now by radioactive imaging of the myocardium.
