ABSTRACT
The author explores the alternative treatments for angina pectoris. Angina pectoris in patients with ischaemic heart disease is commonly treated successfully with anti-ischaemic drugs and percutaneous or surgical coronary interventions. However, angina attacks in some patients are not prevented by optimal medical treatment and coronary lesions are judged unsuitable for coronary revascularization.
