About the disease

Angina pectoris is a decreased blood flow to the heart, which results in chest pain. Pain appears because of insufficient oxygen supply to the heart. Pain can worsen if person experiences physical or emotional stress.

There are two types of angina:

  • Stable
  • Unstable

Stable angina is predictable and usually a person knows what can trigger chest pain and thus he has partial control over it.

Unstable angina is a more dangerous condition, when pain appears suddenly, even if a person was calm and did not do any exercises. Without treatment it can result in heart attack.  


  • Pain and discomfort in chest
  • Dizziness
  • Nausea
  • Headache
  • Burning in chest
  • Discomfort in jaw, neck, and back

Very often people who have angina take excessive amount of nitroglycerin pills to alleviate the pain. If it does not go away after 15 minutes, it can be a heart attack a person needs to get immediate medical help. Heart attack happens because of coronary artery blockage. 

Usually angina pectoris is caused by coronary artery disease which hampers the blood flow. According to statistics, around 18% of coronary disease attacks are accompanied by angina. This disease is more common in men. Women have angina 70% more often than men.  


  • Electrocardiogram monitors electrical activity of heart and its deviations from standard.
  • Coronary angiography is in most cases used to evaluate the extent and severity of carotid artery stenosis and angina.
  • Stress and exercise test is used to see how heart reacts to the changes in physical and emotional activity of the patient.
  • Chest radiography is probably the most precise method of angina diagnosis as it can make image not only of the chest, but also of conditions affecting it. It uses ionizing radiation to get chest images.


  • Сardiac catheterization with stent placement is a surgery, during which a doctor inserts tube into blood vessel, reaches coronary artery and places special stent to widen this artery. This procedure is done to prevent narrowing and insufficient oxygen supply of blood to the heart in future.
  • Сardiac catheterization and coronary bypass surgery (cabg) is recommended in more severe cases. It also uses catheter to reach the heart and after that doctor takes artery or graft vein from healthy blood vessel and then attaches it to damaged artery, so that blood flow can surpass it.
  • Coronary bypass surgery (cabg) creates the bypass during open-heart surgery under general anesthesia. Doctors usually use saphenous leg vein to attach to the damaged artery. This procedure can be performed during on and off pump heart surgery. 

Overall, all these types of treatment are highly effective and can prevent heart attack in future if you are under risk or prevent new heart attack if you already had one.
