Definition and Causes of Chronic Angina

Chronic angina (also stable angina) is a syndrome that is manifested as chest pain emerging when it becomes hard for the heart to work. It occurs due to discrepancy between the requirements of the myocardium in oxygen and the possibilities of its delivery. The cause of angina pectoris, as well as ischemic heart disease, is the atherosclerosis-induced narrowing of the coronary vessels. Angina attacks develop with a narrowing of the lumen diameter of the coronary arteries by 50-70%. The more serious atherosclerotic stenosis, the more severe angina occurs.
