Findings See Chest Pain. Coronary Artery Disease Chapter. In hospitalized patients with unstable angina or the newer term of “high-risk acute coronary syndromes”those with resting ischaemic ECG changes or those with raised cardiac enzymes such as troponin may undergo coronary angiography directly.

Stable angina pectoris is relieved by rest or administration or oral, sublingual or transdermal antianginal medications. These images are a random sampling from a Bing search on the term “Angina Pectoris.

Studies, including the Women’s Ischemia Syndrome Evaluation WISEsuggest that microvascular angina is part of the pathophysiology of ischemic heart disease, perhaps explaining the higher rates of angina in women than in men, as well as their predilection towards ischemia and acute coronary syndromes in the absence of obstructive coronary artery disease.

Aggressive interventions to reduce modifiable risk factors are an important component of management, especially smoking cessation, exercise, and diabetes management.
