Knowing something about the anatomy and functioning of the heart, in particular how angina and heart attacks work, will enable you to make informed decisions about your health. Heart disease can strike suddenly and require you to make decisions quickly. Being informed prior to an emergency is a valuable asset to you and your family. In this article we will discuss various heart diseases and how they can lead to a heart attack, or even a stroke. We will also look at how heart attacks are treated and what you should do to prevent heart disease. The basics Coronary Artery Disease (CAD), Coronary Heart Disease (CHD), Ischemic Heart Disease (IHD) and Arteriosclerotic Cardiovascular Disease (ASCVD) are all different names for the same disease. This disease is caused by atherosclerosis, which is a buildup of fatty deposits (atheroma) in the coronary arteries. See the figure below:

    Angina and Heart Disease
    What is angina?
    Angina (say: "ann-ji-na") is a squeezing pain or a pressing feeling in the chest. It is most often caused by blockages in the arteries that supply blood to your heart. This is called coronary artery disease, or heart disease. The symptoms you describe to your doctor will help your doctor decide if you need to be tested for heart disease. Your doctor will also check for any conditions that can increase your chance of heart disease. These conditions include:
    • high blood pressure diabetes smoking high cholesterol level menopause in women family members who have had heart disease at a young age
    If you have heart disease, your angina can be treated by treating the heart disease.

    Angina is caused by narrowing of the coronary (heart) arteries. Usual treatment includes a statin drug to lower your cholesterol level, low-dose aspirin to help prevent a heart attack and a betablocker drug to help protect the heart. An angiotensin-converting enzyme (ACE) inhibitor drug may be advised in some cases. Betablockers and other drugs are also commonly used to ease and prevent angina pains. In some cases, angioplasty or surgery are options to widen, or to bypass, narrowed arteries.

    Angina, or angina pectoris, is the medical term for chest pains behind the breastbone. Angina pectoris is Latin for squeezing of the chest. Angina is a specific type of pain in the chest caused by inadequate blood flow through the blood vessels (coronary vessels) of the heart muscle (myocardium). Angina, characterized by chest pain, is a symptom of a condition called myocardial ischemia , which occurs when the heart muscle isn't getting as much blood as it needs to function.
    Angina is not a disease itself. It is the primary symptom of coronary artery disease. Angina can also be a warning sign of heart attack. Angina usually indicates a partial blockage in blood flow to the heart. Angina is more common and more intense in men than in women. Doctors are uncertain whether this occurs because women tolerate pain better than men, or whether women unconsciously lower their physical activity to avoid attacks of angina. Angina attacks in men usually occur after the age of 30 and are nearly always caused by coronary artery disease (CAD). For women, angina tends to occur later in life.

        Angina Care Guide
        • Angina Angina Aftercare Instructions Angina Discharge Care Angina Inpatient Care En Espanol Your heart is always working to pump blood to your entire body. Blood carries oxygen and other things that your body needs in order to do its work. Your heart needs a constant supply of oxygen-rich blood for itself as well. The blood vessels that supply blood to your heart muscle are called coronary arteries. Sometimes one or more of the coronary arteries become narrowed or blocked. This may cause you to feel pain or discomfort in your chest at certain times. This chest pain that comes and goes is called angina.
          Angina starts when your heart muscle does not get enough oxygen to do its work. If the heart goes too long without enough oxygen, part of the heart muscle may start to die. This is called a myocardial infarction, which is also called an "MI" or a "heart attack". Angina can be a warning sign that you may be at risk for a heart attack.

    Coronary Artery Disease
    All these conditions and many more coronary, artery or heart conditions are a result of furred up arteries; arteries that become blocked either fully or partially with fatty plaque known as atheroma. This one process of furring up the arteries causes all of the above conditions and is therefore the western world's biggest killer. Raymond Gaftarnick found out some four years ago that his arteries were blocked by up to 50%. When he asked the Consultant how serious this was, he was told "Put it this way, I wouldn't want arteries like yours at your age." "The consultants comments scared me into doing something." said Raymond,"I gathered as much information about my condition as possible from various different sources. I used this information to good effect by adding a handful of products that can be bought in your local supermarket to my daily diet."

    Back to A-Z Printer Version (opens new window)
    Angina is a syndrome (a collection of symptoms caused by an underlying health condition) that is caused when the supply of oxygen-rich blood to the heart becomes restricted. The most common symptom of angina is chest pain that is usually triggered by physical activity. Most cases of angina are caused by atherosclerosis, which is a condition where the arteries become hardened and narrower, restricting the supply of blood. Risk factors for atherosclerosis include:
    • advanced age, smoking, obesity, and a high-fat diet.
    Diseases that affect the normal flow of blood, such as atherosclerosis, are known as cardiovascular diseases (CVD). Types of angina There are two main types of angina:
    • stable angina, and unstable angina.
    Stable angina In cases of stable angina, the symptoms usually develop gradually, over time, and follow a set pattern. For example, you may only experience symptoms when climbing stairs, or if you are under a great deal of stress. Symptoms usually only last for a few minutes and can be improved by taking medication that is known as glyceryl trinitrate.

    Angina is chest pain or a sensation of pressure that occurs when the heart muscle is not getting enough oxygen. It tends to develop in women at a later age than in men. A form of angina - angina decubitus - occurs when a person is lying down (not necessarily during sleep). It occurs because the fluids in the body are redistributed in this position due to gravity, and the heart has to work harder. Another form - variant angina - occurs from a spasm in the arteries on the surface of the heart. It produces pain during rest rather than physical activity. It also produces changes that are detectable with electrocardiography (ECG) while it is happening. Unstable angina is when the pattern of symptoms changes. Usually, the condition in each individual usually remains constant, so any change - increased pain, more frequent attacks or occurrence at lesser levels of activity or at rest - is a serious matter. It could mean that the coronary artery disease is getting worse rapidly and the risk of a heart attack is high. Unstable angina should be considered a medical emergency.
