    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...

    Background:: Severe refractory angina pectoris can occur in end-stage coronary artery disease despite maximal medical and revascularization therapy. Spinal cord stimulation is an under-utilized but well-established modality for the treatment of intractable angina pain. Aim:: To illustrate the...

    Background: Inflammation within vulnerable coronary plaques may cause unstable angina by promoting rupture and erosion. In unstable angina, activated leukocytes may be found in peripheral and coronary-sinus blood, but it is unclear whether they are selectively activated in the vascular bed of...

    Intervention in coronary artery disease is an area of cardiology where novel drugs, in the form of drug-eluting stents (DES), are being used increasingly commonly. DES are used across the whole range of coronary intervention, from stable angina patients with single or multivessel disease, acute...
