Sixty-eight subjects with coronary insufficiency, 23 postcoronary patients and 45 with developing arteriosclerotic heart disease, were placed on a program consisting of three elements: emergency medication (nitroglycerin), a long-acting protective agent (trolnitrate phosphate), and reassurance by the physician. Fifty-nine (87 per cent) reported no anginal episodes or a marked decrease in the number and severity of attacks. Fifty-seven (84 per cent) were able to continue their ‘normal’ lives with virtually no restrictions or only partial restrictions. Trolnitrate phosphate appears to be an excellent antianginal agent for prophylactic use, especially in the geriatric patient. A well rounded program such as described above is recommended for the treatment of coronary insufficiency.
