    Angina pectoris occurs when the oxygen supply to the myocardium falls below the physiologic requirement of the moment. This anoxia is reversible and when the oxygen supply becomes adequate the angina attack subsides. These attacks can be prevented or controlled by coronary vasodilator drugs. The...

    No one form of therapy can be expected to correct the multiple factors operating in coronary arteriosclerosis. Proper treatment requires agents to minimize changes in the vascular walls by preventing atheromatous deposits, to minimize emotional stress and restore the retarded blood flow and to...
