What is Angina (Chest Pain)?

Description of the Disease

Angina, also known as chest pain, is a form of coronary heart disease characterized by acute chest pain or discomfort. This is due to inadequate blood supply to the heart muscle caused by narrowing of the arteries that supply blood to the heart.


  • Stable angina
  • Unstable angina
  • Progressive angina


The main symptoms of angina include acute chest pain, pressure, tightness, or burning in the chest area, which may spread to the neck, arms, back, or stomach. Shortness of breath, sweating, feeling of weakness, or dizziness may also occur.


The main cause of angina is hypoxia of the heart muscle due to narrowing or blockage of the arteries supplying blood to the heart.


Various methods are used to diagnose angina, including ECG, stress tests, coronary angiography, MRI or CT of the heart.


Treatment of angina may include medication, arterial stretching procedures (stenting), coronary artery bypass grafting, or lifestyle changes.


To prevent angina, it is important to lead a healthy lifestyle, including healthy eating, regular physical activity, quitting smoking and alcohol, controlling blood pressure and cholesterol.


The treatment of angina is carried out by a cardiologist.
