Angina Pectoralis

Were you looking for information about angina pectoris, also referred to as Angina? Angina pectoralis is a common misspelling of angina pectoris.
 
Angina is a condition characterized by chest pain due to a temporary lack of oxygen-rich blood to the heart. The three different types have different symptoms and treatment options. Stable angina occurs when the heart is working harder than usual and generally goes away with rest; unstable angina is dangerous and requires emergency treatment; variant angina occurs at rest and can be relieved by medicine.
